Families should embrace the use of digital media and not shun it, according to new research. Scientists have found that instead of replacing valuable quality time, digital media is enhancing family relationships and helping parents bond with kids by keeping them in touch. The Parenting For A Digital Future report from the London School of Economics is based on a survey of 2,000 parents of children aged between 0 and 17.

While internet use continues to increase, 8 in 10 parents said they still eat meals and watch TV with their kids every week. Parents are also using technology as a learning tool. For example, 3 in 10 said they use the internet for health info related to their kids, 4 in 10 used it to download or stream content for their children, and around half said they use it for educational purposes.
