In brief

The results from EU Kids Online in Lithuania show that 86% of children go online every day. Children here have a wide range of skills and are good explorers of the internet, with only 10% of them being "restricted learners". However, Lithuanian children also report a higher percentage of risks than the average of their European peers, with 22% of children reporting contact risks. With 46% of Lithuanian parents exerting no mediation of their children’s activities, this is a cause for concern.

 

Highlights

  • Lithuanian efforts have been concentrated around creating awareness of the need for parental involvement through dissemination of results in various media outlets.
