Abstract

Over the past few decades, research on the role of media in the lives of children and adolescents has significantly progressed in the volume of studies, the variety of topics and the richness of methodological approaches.This process has accelerated even more in the digital age, which created a greater diversity of content, ways of accessing media and new practices of content consumption and creation. This situation has resulted in new research challenges and yielded new insights regarding childhood and adolescence in an environment saturated with digital technologies and their effects on the development processes, identity formation, family relationships and the young media users’ well-being. This review provides a bird’s eye view of the main research areas, which bring together children,youth and their parents and the digital media, while shining the spotlight on the essential processes inherent in “digital childhood” and their implications for cognitive, emotional and social development.
