Introducing the Youth and Media Research Network

The site is a place for parents to find the latest research about youth and media.  We are researchers who have set up this site as a place to translate what we are learning and reading about young people and how they are growing up in an increasingly digital age.  We invite research colleagues to write here about their research as well as to review the work of others in a way that parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors of young people can understand and put to use.

Part of our theory is to engage young people themselves in this work.  In our research, we always include young people directly in the framing of the questions, the review of hypotheses, and the development of advice for adults.

Over time, we intend to create and enduring and useful resource for parents who seek to support and guide the young people in their lives in a positive manner.
