This chapter compares the articulation between agents of mediation. Five different types of mediation are considered: active mediation of child's use, active mediation of child's internet safety, restrictive mediation, monitoring, and technical mediation of child's internet use. Data show that parents are the main mediation agents in all countries, but the role of teachers appear to be very important, especially in northern European countries, and for older adolescents. Those adults mainly give restrictive rules or advice about safety. On the opposite side, peers appear to play a major role when seeking social support, whatever the type of risk.
