Coronavirus pandemic has also shown that these technologies have become indispensable in daily lives. During the pandemic lockdown, many parents have worked remotely and children have been attending distance education. Thus, these technologies are commonly used by all family members in this period.

It was asked to parents the questions on screen time, content, and type of devices children use in digital media. Additionally, they answered some questions on their views, concerns, and approaches to digital risks and opportunities for their children.
