Recommendations

Children come into contact with digital media at an early age. The devices fascinate them, arouse their curiosity. It’s not long before parents are faced with the question: can my young child try out a games app? When they are of school age, children start learning about the Internet and need both guidance and support. And when it comes to adolescents, they should learn about both the opportunities and the risks using media themselves entails. Our recommendations are intended for parents but also other people important in a child's life and experts who work with children and adolescents. We want to help you expertly guide young people in their dealings with digital media. You will also find these recommendations in flyers which you can order or download free of charge – for three age groups: children up to the age of 7 years, children between the ages of 6 and 13 years, adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18 years. The flyers are available in 16 languages.
