MF-Pre/Mediafasting before 

MF-Post/ Mediafasting after 

In preparation of the upcoming MediaFasting period we would like to ask you to fill out this online survey. Further information can be found on this website ( We would like to carry out a before / after survey – that is why at the end of your one-month MediaFasting period we will be sending you a reminder email in order to fill out another questionnaire online afterwards.

​We are interested to understand how specific attitudes and behaviors of parents and their older children change with MediaFasting. Therefore, we would like to invite you to anonymously respond to standardized questionnaire modules.

To respond to these questions, you may require 10-15 minutes. You will be asked to fill one questionnaire at the start (before) and at the end of MediaFasting (after),

Participation is strictly by choice! The anonym information you may give is strictly confidentially and will be processes in an anonymous way (i.e., no names, initials, address, or other identifying variables). Professional discretion and data privacy will be guaranteed!

If your child is 14 years or older, please let them fill out this questionnaire. If not, please fill out the extra questions about young children below.Please read the questions carefully and indicate how true each statement is for you and your current situation. Be as spontaneous as possible and do not spend too much time thinking about your answer. Please be as honest and true as possible: There is no `right´ or `wrong´ answer!

Additional data protection information: Answers are anonymous. IP addresses of the respondents are not logged! Accordingly, no statements can be deleted retrospectively. Timings are not saved; however, the answers will be timestamped. Google Analytics Settings: None

With many thanks we are wishing you much success:
