STENGEL, Márcia et al. Generation, family and youth in the virtual age. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp. 424-441. ISSN 1677-1168.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) triggered changes in personal and family relationships. In this digital context, we can divide participants into digital natives and immigrants. The objective of this article is to discuss influence of virtuality in the relationship between parents and young children, considering the generational aspects of this relationship, based on a review of literature on generation, adolescence/youth and virtuality and parts of interviews carried out with young between aged from 15 to 24 years old and their parents. Various conflicts and challenges are perceived in parent-child relationship. There is much to be done by members of the two groups so that the channels of sociability, with mediation of ICT between them, are not weakened. The perception that the presence of ICT in daily life of families can generate dissociation and not sociability seems to be the greatest challenge to be overwhelmed, particularly for parents.

Keywords : Generation; Family; Youth; Virtuality.
