What Parents Need to Know about the Ofcom Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes Report 2022

Published 6th April 2022

A free online safety guide on the Ofcom Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes Report 2022.

Ofcom’s annual ‘Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes’ report offers a detailed rundown of how young people used and experienced the internet during the previous year. Like its immediate predecessor, the 2022 edition will be particularly revealing because its findings again reflect the continuing impact of the pandemic on young people’s online activities. This special #WakeUpWednesday guide presents some of the report’s most relevant points in an accessible infographic format.

In the guide, you'll find stats including the percentage of young people who own a mobile phone (and at which ages), the most-used platforms by children in 2021, and the main online safety concerns of parents and carers.

This is part of our Social Media, Online Bullying and Streaming categories.
