Good technology management is a subject that parents have always faced. Once as simple as limiting television time, it now oversees many technologies. From eyes glued to smartphones all day to hours of play with video games, children are immersed in technology. As part of the ENERGY project, a cross-sectional survey was conducted among children aged 10 to 12 and their parents in eight European countries. Children and parents completed a questionnaire on 14 parenting practices for five different DRE (e.g. B soft drink, consumption of fruit juice and breakfast, sports activity and television) and socio-demographic characteristics. The anthropometric measurements of the children were made at school. We calculated as a percentage the agreement between children and their parents and weighted Kappa statistics (for ordinal variables) by practice and by country and assessed the factors associated with an agreement using a linear regression at several levels. As part of the ENERGY  project, eight European countries participated in the cross-sectional survey , resulting in a large data set that reflected different cultures. This is important because parenting practices and perceptions of these practices are likely to vary from culture to culture . A number of variables that may influence the relationship between children`s and parents` relationships, such as the BMI of objectively assessed children. B and parental perception of their child`s weight, were available for analysis.
The reliability of the test was good for both parental and child questionnaires, and conception was good and moderate to good for most, but the elements of parental and subordinate practice in the parental and child questionnaire [38, 39]. In general, return rates of children were high (more than 80% in all countries). Return rates were generally high among parents, with the exception of Belgium (62%) and the Netherlands (44%), which may have skewed the results, not least because non-response is related to the child`s BMI . There should be a debate about what is considered appropriate content. If the contract applies to video games, you must include age-appropriate ratings for your child. If it`s for a phone, make sure what apps they are and aren`t allowed to use.
