Rules for a Digital Life - Interview with Dr. Claudia Lampert

Rules for a Digital Life - Interview with Dr. Claudia Lampert

Dr. Claudia Lampert spoke with the magazine "Gesunde Stadt [Healthy City]" of the Wiener Gesundheitsförderung [Vienna Health Promotion] about growing up healthy in the digital world and how parents can support this.

One of the things she explains is what sense mobile phone bans make in schools – Not much as long as parents do not live by such prohibitive rules as well:
 

„In Frankreich gibt es Handyverbot in Schulklassen. Diese Idee ist auch nach Deutschland übergeschwappt. Mit einem Verbot allein ist es aber noch nicht getan. Beim Vermitteln der notwendigen Kompetenzen und Vorleben bestimmter Verhaltensweisen sind auch die Eltern gefragt. Zudem haben ja auch nicht alle Jugendlichen einen exzessiven Smartphonegebrauch. Es gibt auch Jugendliche, die für sich hilfreiche Strategien entwickeln, z. B. WhatsAppGruppen verlassen oder bestimmte Regeln vereinbaren, was gepostet wird.“

[In France, there is a mobile phone ban in schools. This idea has also spilled over into Germany. However, a ban alone does not do the trick. Parents are also asked to teach the necessary skills and to live by the example of certain behaviours. Besides, not all young people use smartphones excessively. There are also young people who develop helpful strategies for themselves, such as leaving WhatsApp groups or agreeing on certain rules about what to post."]

Dr. Caudia Lampert was a guest at the Wiener Gesundheitsförderungskonfernz [Vienna Conference on Health Promotion] on "Digitalisierung und Gesundheit [Digitisation and Health]" in September 2018.

Digitale Medien in der Lebenswelt von Heranwachsenden und in der Gesundheitsförderung [Fascinatingly Seductive. Digital Media in the Living Environment of Adolescents and in Health Promotions]."
