Respect, Restriction, and Reversal

(p.98) Chapter 5 Less Advantaged Teens, Ethnicity, and Digital and Mobile Media
The Parent App

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on limitations some young people encounter in relation to the digital and mobile media environment. Middle class and less advantaged young people comprise a much more culturally diverse group than their peers in the upper middle and wealthy classes in the U.S., and therefore there is less uniformity in how families from these backgrounds address digital and mobile media. Yet the thread of respectful connectedness weaves through these stories, demonstrating how strongly rooted this ethic is in the diverse ethnic heritage of U.S. society. The chapter then presents stories of some young people who are recent immigrants to the U.S., considering how parents in these families emphasize respect for parents, embrace stronger patterns of restriction about digital and mobile media, and because their children have more expertise with media and language than they do, families sometimes experience situations of authority reversal.
