pp. 1 - 24
The aim of this study is to examine the digital parenting attitudes of the parents of secondary school students. Relational survey model, one of the quantitative research models, was used in the study. The sample group of the study consists of parents living in a western city and whose children attend secondary school. The data of the study were collected through the Digital Parenting Attitude Scale developed by İnan Kaya, Mutlu Bayraktar, Yılmaz (2018). The analyses were analysed and interpreted with SPSS 21.0 software. The parents who participated in the study stated that they read books with their children, they follow how many books their children read per month, they read books regularly every month; they are engaged in watching television, internet and social media, reading books and listening to music outside of daily work; they generally watch 0-1 hour of television every day, spend 1-2 hours daily on social media, approve the effective use of digital media, and protect their children from digital media risks. In the study, while there was a significant difference between the digital attitudes of the parents and their gender, there was no significant relationship between the parents' reading books with their children, their status of following how many books their children read per month, their educational status, their age, their monthly income, the classes in which their children study, their occupations, the number of books they read annually, the work they do other than daily work, their daily television watching time, the time they spend on social media daily and their digital parenting attitudes.

The aim of this study is to determine the consistency of the values of secondary school students and their parents with each other and to compare the overlapping values of children and parents. Thus, the consistency of the values of secondary school students and their parents with each other was determined and a comparison was made. The research was carried out on students and parents of two secondary schools providing different types of education. Phenomonological design, one of the qualitative research designs, was used in the study. The study group consisted of 32 students and 32 parents selected on the basis of volunteerism. Letter writing technique was used as a data collection tool. Students of two secondary schools providing different types of education and their parents were reached. The 32 letters received from 32 students and their parents were subjected to content analysis. Student letters were coded as S1, S2, S3... and parent letters were coded as V1, V2, V3..... Frequency tables were created by determining the values in the letters. As a result of the content analysis, the values with the highest frequency in the student letters were gratitude, heroism, patriotism, loyalty, independence and courage. The values with the highest frequency in parent letters were values such as love of homeland, loyalty, gratitude, heroism, sacrifice, religious feelings. The most overlapping value in student and parent (PT) letters was gratitude. It was observed that the values of pride, respect, human love and solidarity in the letters did not overlap. As a result of the content analysis, our hypothesis statement "Since families teach their values to their children, child-parent values are similar to each other" was not fully confirmed. The values mentioned in the student-parent letters were similar to each other, but a complete harmony could not be determined. This study does not address the validity of the hypothesis.
