Active mediation refers to parents’ active guidance with children and media usage, such as providing helpful information and advice on educational programming, advertising, and video games. In today’s modern society, digital media technology plays an important role in the development of children and adolescents, so it is necessary to explore how to fully take advantage of the benefits and how to minimize the negative effects of electronic media. Parental active mediation can effectively improve the cognitive and social development of children and adolescents by helping children to develop critical thinking skills and resisting the acceptance of aggressive attitudes. Many factors, such as family and social upbringing, have been found to influence parental active mediation. Future research should develop effective methods to facilitate active mediation and investigate the mechanisms of the interaction effect between parental mediation and media use, and focus on the effectiveness of active mediation with children and adolescents.
