For parents, monitoring their kids online raises all sorts of conflicting feelings

Mary Madden

As parents look to monitor kids online behavior, Mary Madden explains how technology has changed the concept of shared family space being inherently safe.

“Added Madden: ‘For a long time, the conventional wisdom was simply to make sure your computer was in a shared space of the home.’ Nowadays, when kids can be sitting on the couch just a few inches from their parents but be immersed in another world on their phones, the concept of shared space being safe space ‘seems so quaint,’ she said.”
