Families row over home PC access (26 Nov 2004)
The Mori survey found that 22% of 15 to 24-year-olds bicker with other family members over who gets computer time.
In their survey of UK children and their parents, the LSE team found that 43% of parents of nine to 17-year-olds have set up rules for how much time their child can spend on the net.
The majority, 90%, of young people interviewed for Dr Bober's research use the net for homework. About 72% of them use it for e-mail and 70% play games on their computers.
"Many families also resort to buying additional computers or laptops to solve this problem. Over a third of nine to 19-year-olds have more than one computer at home," said Dr Bober.
