Digital media (Internet, mobile phone, etc.)

There are many good aspects of the Internet and digital media, but there are also risks. Especially where children and young people are concerned, it is important that they do not spend too much time on the Internet, their mobile phone, or computer games.
Parents can learn how to help their children to achieve a balance between "real" life and digital life. FISP offers events, podcasts and brochures in various languages. In this way parents can ensure that their children do not develop a problem using digital media.


FISP provides information and discussion events on the subject below. Due to the information received, parents with a migrant background know what digital media is and the opportunities and risks associated with it. Parents also learn how to identify problematic use of digital media.

The information events are run by trained intercultural mediators, mainly in migrants’ groups or their organisations, usually in the migrants’ mother tongue.
