Poor job prospects face children whose parents don’t know an earl from a URL. A London School of Economics study found many parents simply do not have the skills to help children use the Internet.

“Now that many young people rely on the Internet for information, homework help and careers guidance, the more it matters that some of them are getting left behind,” said Sonia Livingstone, Professor of Social Psychology.

In addition to a gap between children with and without Internet access, the study says a divide between children’s knowledge of Internet use has developed as well.
