Nearly 90% of Russian Parents Read Print Books with Young Children

Russian parents read print books with their kids when they are young, but this activity tapers off as kids get older and new media channels play a larger role.

According to a new report from Anketki Research called Digital Parenting Russia, almost 90 percent of Russian parents read print books with their four-to-six year old kids but that number drops down to less than 50 percent with sixteen-to-eighteen year olds. Russian parents are less likely to read eBooks to their four-to-six year old kids than they are with their sixteen-to-eighteen year olds.

When looking at attitudes about the positive impact of digital media on children’s development, eight percent of dads think that eBooks have a positive impact on a child’s development and four percent of mothers think that paper books have a positive impact on a child’s development.

AppNewser has more about the report: “According to the report, almost 90 percent of children use cell phones and 80 percent use desktop computers on a regular basis. In addition, 14 percent of sixteen-to-eighteen year olds in Russia own a tablet.”
