Devine, Paula and Lloyd, Katrina (2012) Internet use and psychological well-being among 10-year-old and 11-year-old children. Child Care in Practice , 18 , (1) , pp. 5-22.

This paper uses data from the 2009 Kids’ Life and Times Survey, involving 3657 children aged 10 or 11 years old in Northern Ireland. The survey indicated high levels of use of Internet applications, including social-networking sites and online games. The data indicate that the use of social-networking sites and online games is related to poorer psychological well-being among girls, but not boys. Boys and girls who experience “cyberbullying” have poorer psychological well-being.
