Exposure to social networks and the internet has grown significantly, being more frequent among children and adolescents for different purposes and representing a challenge for parenting. The strategies that parents use to deal with this behavior can constitute risk or protective factors. Considering the challenges commonly faced by parents in order to monitor and protect their children from certain risks, this theoretical article aimed to describe and discuss the use of social networks and internet in childhood and adolescence, as well as the impact of this use on parenting. From the review carried out, it was observed that studies on the subject indicate out the importance of mediation and parental monitoring on the exposure of children and adolescents to social networks and electronic games, resulting in a protective factor for development. In addition, it was observed that parents and children may differ regarding the perception of parental control exercised.

Keywords : social media; games; parenting style; childhood; adolescence.
