The focus of this study is patterns of use of digital media, which are the most popular platforms and what control that parents impose on the consumption of digital media. We analyzed children aged between 7 and 10 years old and pre-teenagers aged between 11 and 12 years old. These groups are those who influence the medium-term trends. The results show that digital media are present in the everyday life of children, who regularly consume their preferred contents. They can be powerful if they can recognize and use their power in this culture of convergence as users.
