This chapter examines the daily life of children in the digital era from the perspective of their time use. The chapter is based on the results of current inquiries from Finland, the United Kingdom and the USA. It reports on children’s new (mobile phones, smartphones, tablets) and traditional media (television) use, which have come to play a prominent role for many children. The chapter looks at the way homes as media environments have changed in recent years, and discusses how the media use of children is related to time spent alone, with family members, and with friends. The chapter points out that a diversity of media is available for children in all three countries. Children’s use of smartphones and tablets is increasing rapidly, and the older they are, the more they spend time online. The chapter also argues that although TV is still an important focus of family time, portable devices are creating the increasing privatization of family time.

The introductory chapter outlines the contents of the volume. The first part of the book maps contemporary family life and child socialization by providing new methodological, theoretical and time-use reflections on media use and media-related child–parent interaction. In addition, it discusses conversation analysis as a method for depicting the complexity of family interaction. This first part utilizes time-use surveys as well as recent theoretical and methodological discussions. The second part of the book reaches into the private zone of family interaction, and provides the reader with detailed interactional analyses of everyday life with media devices. Detailed case studies of various forms of media-related family interaction contribute to understanding new forms of family time, and conflict situations.
