What Are Teens Doing On The Internet? Don't Ask Parents, Because They Don't Have A Clue

International Business Times

If you are hoping to ask parents what kids do on the Internet, think again! A new study by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)--and co-sponsored by Microsoft--looking at online safety attitudes and behaviors has found a "digital disconnect" between parents and their teenage children. The survey, which interviewed 804 online teens between the ages of 13 and 17 and a separate sample 810 online parents of teens of the same age group, found that parents don't necessarily know what their kids are up to. For example, 60 percent of teens have online accounts that parents are not aware of and only 28 percent of parents have suspicions that their teens have secret accounts. The disconnect is also seen in disciplining and monitoring Internet usage.
