In 2020, FOSI launched its newest research study, Tools for Today's Digital Parents, which explored parents' and teens' attitudes toward the use of parental controls and online safety tools. The data also delved into the role these tools play inside the household, where approaches to digital parenting can differ. 

In 2021, we conducted a poll in the APAC region to see how these findings compared in a new geographic and cultural context. By posing a short series of survey questions to parents in India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand, we explored their top concerns about kids' media consumption, and how they view the responsibility of online safety. 

At this event, a presentation of these findings was followed by several panel discussions with NGO and industry experts. The aim of the workshop was to bring together participants from industry, civil society, academic and the public sector to discuss online safety, how we think of digital citizenship and how to respond to the many challenges and opportunities that digital technology poses to children and their families.
