Israel - A new study conducted by Professor Dafna Lemish who personally interviewed 532 youths, aged 9-18, who were each asked 190 questions pertaining to their internet habits, will have most parents not too happy with the results.
The children polled are a representative sampling of Israel’s youth, more Jews than non-Jews and more families from a higher socio-economic standing than families from lower ones. The study did not include youths from the ultra-Orthodox Jewish public.
The study first found that 47 percent of the youths polled have a private internet connection in their bedrooms. Sixty percent of those polled said they had viewed unclean material online. Their parents on the other hand had a slightly more naïve view, only 16 percent said they believed their children had accessed to unclean websites.
Sixty-two percent said their parents were clueless about their internet activities.
