According to the study, young people in the Czech Republic tend to spend more time on online communication at the expense of personal contacts with their peers.

At the same time, a growing number of teenagers regularly practice some sport. The survey also suggests that, thanks to modern technologies, parents have greater control over their children, Czech Radio adds.
