The study "Minors on Internet and hazardous behaviour" collates and analyses the responses of 750 school-age pupils from 35 classes from 11 different primary and middle schools in Southern Switzerland, aged between 8 and 16, regarding their web behaviour, their Internet utilisation habits and, more generally, their PC utilisation habits. The results show: (1) daily and widespread capillary-like utilisation of the PC and of the Internet for the entire age-band studied, (2) a relative or partial perception of the risks and crimes and (3) very personal forms of reaction and assessment, often inadequately considered and ingenuous, regarding situations that arise online.

Keywords: Internet, infancy, abuse, risk, prevention.
