By Sonia Livingstone and Alicia Blum-Ross

Parenting for a Digital Future, by Sonia Livingstone and Alicia Blum-Ross, is based on in-depth studies of how families approach and self regulate the highly mediated world they inhabit.

The book explores the choices being made by parents around children’s use of digital technology at a time when advice and guidance is either absent or out of step with the nuanced realities of digital life today, and as the connected world of tomorrow only begins to take shape.


How are families responding to unprecedented digital transformation and why? Research authors SONIA LIVINGSTONE and ALICIA BLUM-ROSS spoke to InterMedia about the hopes, fears and needs of widely diverse parents.
