Index for Youth Media Protection 2022 – Handling Online-Related Risks by Children, Young People, and their Parents

How do children and parents view youth media protection? What risks and challenges do they face when using online media? And how do they deal with them? These are some of the questions that arise in connection with the media use of children and young people and which are of great importance for functioning youth media protection. The JFF – Institut für Medienpädagogik in Forschung und Praxis [JFF - Institute for Media Education in Research and Practice] and the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) investigate these questions in a joint study on behalf of the Voluntary Self-Monitoring by Multimedia Providers e.V. (FSM).

The project aims to create an up-to-date, knowledge-based foundation for the further development of youth media protection. With the help of an updated standardised survey instrument, relevant competence-, attitude- and action-related aspects are recorded.

After the first representative survey of parents and children (Index for Youth Media Protection 2017) and a survey of pedagogical teachers and specialists (Index for Youth Media Protection 2018), another parent/child survey will take place in 2022. By interviewing one child between the ages of nine and 16 and one parent, representative results on both perspectives can be obtained. Parents' and children's responses can be directly related to each other, which allows conclusions to be drawn about the exact interaction of both perspectives.
