Coronavirus has had a very significant impact on many areas of human life. The pandemic affected not only adults but also children. Children, who have been gradually moving into cyberspace in the last few years, are now much more supported in the use of the media, for example in the field of education (in the Czech Republic, virtually all schooling has moved to the Internet and television) and in leisure areas (some radio stations also responded to the lockdown). The paper focuses on mapping the attitudes and experiences of parents of children under 15 years of age to the use of media by their children during the lockdown in the Czech Republic and the differences in the attitudes of fathers and mothers. It presents the results of a study carried out in the form of a questionnaire during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, when parents were unprepared for government action and shows, that women bore a greater part of the responsibility for parental support in the area of media use during the period of online learning in Czech families.
