One in three kids say parents share content without consent

27 per cent of Norwegian children informs that their parents share pictures or films of them without asking for permission first. This appears in a recent study.

Half of the children also react to the time spent on mobile phones by their parents.

Penetrance has conducted a survey on behalf of Telenor Norway and The Digital Parental School (Den Digitale Foreldreskolen), which reveals this.

Furthermore, half of the parents state that they have accessed their childrens’ mobile phone, tablet or PC one or more times, in order to pry without consent. As many believe that it is their parental duty to do so.


Two-thirds object to parental snooping

65 per cent of the kids informs that they don’t think that it’s okay that their parents access their digital devices without consent.

The survey shows that the number of children who play [on their devices] more than three hours a day, has increased from 25 per cent in 2016 to 36 per cent in 2019. Furthermore, it appears that 68 per cent of children between the ages of 10 and 12 are on Snapchat, even though the service has a 13 years age limit.
