Pew Internet & American Life Project
Most parents of teenagers are concerned about what their teenage children do online and how their behavior could be monitored by others. Some parents are taking steps to observe, discuss, and check up on their children's digital footprints. A new survey of 802 parents and their teens shows that: (1) 81% of parents of online teens say they are concerned about how much information advertisers can learn about their child's online behavior, with some 46% being "very" concerned; (2) 72% of parents of online teens are concerned about how their child interacts online with people they do not know, with some 53% of parents being "very" concerned; (3) 69% of parents of online teens are concerned about how their child's online activity might affect their future academic or employment opportunities, with some 44% being "very" concerned about that; and (4) 69% of parents of online teens are concerned about how their child manages his or her reputation online, with some 49% being "very" concerned about that.
