Determinants of self-reliant and shared use of print- and screen-media in zero-to-six-year-olds

An online survey among 1.085 parents investigated (a) how young children (0-6 years) use media, (b) to what extent they share media with parents and siblings, and (c) which family, parent and child characteristics explain differences in shared or solitary use. Depending on age, parent’s education and siblings at home, children’s print- and screen-media use varied from 49 minutes/day (low users) to 280 minutes/day (very high users). Among high users there are more media devices in the bedroom and parents see mediation as somewhat more difficult. Educational and creativity applications are used the most alone. Television programs or YouTube-clips, and books are mostly used with parents. Older and more media-literate children mostly use media alone, whereas with more siblings at home media are shared with peers and less with parents. The data may assist in campaigns that empower specific groups of parents in the mediation of their children’s media use.

  • Het tijdschrift Pedagogiek stelt zich ten doel de wetenschappelijke discussie over opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming binnen het Nederlands taalgebied (Nederland en Vlaanderen) te stimuleren en te ondersteunen. Pedagogiek beoogt naast een bijdrage aan het wetenschappelijke debat ook de maatschappelijke discussie op de terreinen van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming te bevorderen. Bijdragen zullen dan ook uitdrukkelijk worden beoordeeld op zowel hun wetenschappelijke als maatschappelijke relevantie. Pedagogiek biedt: (1) wetenschappelijke verslagen van empirisch, theoretisch en historisch onderzoek op het gebied van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming, alsmede review studies op onderhavige terreinen; (2) opiniërende bijdragen van wetenschappelijk niveau (Forumbijdragen); (3) boekbesprekingen.

    The journal Pedagogiek (Pedagogy) aims to stimulate and support the scholarly discourse on child rearing, education and training within the Dutch language area (The Netherlands and the Flemish region). Pedagogiek strives to contribute to the scholarly debate, but also desires to boost the public debate on the subject of child rearing, education and training. Therefore, contributions will be judged explicitly on both their scholarly merit and their social relevance. Pedagogiek offers: (1) scholarly articles reporting on empirical, theoretical and historical research in the field of child rearing, education and training, and review studies in the same field; (2) opinion pieces on a scholarly level (panel discussions); (3) book reviews.
