Abstract

This study examined whether and what are the gaps between parents' perceptions of their children's online behavior and the children's perceptions of parental control. It was found that there is a discrepancy between the child's perception of the frequency with which his parents use a mediation strategy, and his parents report on their mediation; Between the child's perception of his parent’s restrictive mediation activities, and their parents' reporting of their restrictive mediation activities; Between the desire of the parents to increase their involvement in their child’s online activity and the desire of the child to keep this involvement intact; A gap between the child and his parents in assessing the dangers inherent on the Internet; There is a positive correlation between the en-abling mediating strategy that was reported by the parent while the child browsed the internet and the child's reporting his online browsing experiences with his parents.
