A Survey Of Awareness, Attitudes, And Use Of Online Parental Controls

Findings From A National Survey Among Parents

FOSI believes that a grounding in facts is necessary for proper initiatives, legislation and development of best practices. For our new research initiatives, the Institute will be partnering with renowned research groups to obtain information on the latest trends and behaviors of children online. By doing this, we hope to achieve a basis of evidence on which further projects will be based.

The Institute has high hopes for a future in research that will cover a wide variety of topics, and is thrilled to have worked with Hart Research Associates on our first piece of data, Who Needs Parental Controls? The project would not have been possible without the support of its sponsors, AT&T, Google, Microsoft and Verizon.

Please see below for the Executive Summary and full report, and stay tuned for upcoming features.
