How can adults in charge of minors fulfil their duty of parenting while at the same time respecting the rights of the child?

Joint proposal by Zentrum für Kinderschutz im Internet - I-KiZ and klicksafe - EU-Initiative in the Safer Internet Programme together with Google Deutschland

Children and youths are accessing the Internet increasingly via mobile devices. A reliably available broadband infrastructure anywhere and high usability of devices like Tablet PCs and Smart Phones are the enablers of the fast growing mobile Internet usage among children and youths. This development raises new questions and challenges for parenting. Parents and other adults in charge of minors are asking for technical support to protect their children form unwanted encounters with harmful content and potentially risky contact with strangers. But at the same time children and youths themselves are holding fundamental human rights like privacy and freedom of speech that must be respected. With parental control as it is provided by technical tools often a high degree of monitoring of children's usage habits comes along that should be seen as intrusion into privacy and is therefore intolerable. Intelligent risk management in a mobile online environment should comprise both: protection of children and empowerment of youths by appropriate educational approaches and adequate technical means.
In this session light shall be cast on the current educational situation in families, media literacy of the parents and available technical tools for parental control but also new strategies like Safety by Design and the legal framework of children’s rights and parents duties shall be discussed.
