A groundbreaking EU Kids Online report, "In Their Own Words," considered how adults' own fears influenced not only children's online experiences but also the research and public policy agendas. The authors wrote, "Most research has sought standardised descriptions of risk as measured in survey questionnaires; and most has asked children about risks that worry adults rather than discovering what concerns children themselves." The study captured young people's own views of their online experiences, positive and negative. An important U.S. study, surveying 13,000 students in 31 schools across the U.S., the Youth Voice Project, gained insights into peer mistreatment and solutions to it. See this blog post for early findings from the Project on what targets of bullying said helped them most.
