Media offers for teenagers

© photothek.net

As your child reaches adolescence, it becomes increasingly difficult to direct him or her to appropriate media content. Most young people want to distance themselves from the parental home during this time and orient themselves more to their peers and to youth cultures. These also strongly influence interest in and use of media offerings. However, it is still important that you stay in conversation with your child and keep saying that some media content is only allowed from the age of 16 or 18 for reasons of youth protection.

At the same time, try to share media and let your child show you exciting content. The older it gets, the more it also moves on a similar level to you in terms of understanding content, humor or the like.
