, 2011, original scientific article
Abstract: This paper deals with media literacy as a multidimensional skill that parents and teachers possess. In this context we warn of the media-technical aspect of this skill and, within this aspect, of parents' and teachers' opinion on the presence of media in children's lives. Following that, the paper explores teachers' media-didactic competence as a component of educators' media literacy. In the empiric part we used two aspects of fostering media literacy. One is the media-technical competence of parents and educators, while the other is the media-didactic competence of educators. We found that both parents and teachers believe that media have a strong presence in everyday lives of pre-school children and that they play an important role in teaching pre-school children. Teachers are aware of the importance of early teaching with media, for media and about media with the purpose of developing children's media literacy, so they will not be afraid of media when they grow up.

Plans of the German government to reform the law of guardianship for minorsHelga Oberloskamp
, 2017, original scientific article
Abstract: For years the praxis has asked for a new law of guardianship, because many things in the current law (which is 117 years old) do not cover the needs of today. Although no one wants to abandon the German system of hav-ing single persons, private organizations and public institutions being guardians, it is disputed until today if there is a ranking between them and if it should be possible to give several guarding/ educating persons to one child and if yes who should bear responsibility. Besides a new law should express clearly the rights of the children and the responsibilities of the guardians.
