    • Abstract:
      This article documents a collaborative inquiry between four parent–child dyads. Adopting an approach of duoethnography, the collaborative explored the question, “What happens when parents and children co‐construct meaning regarding the challenges and opportunities in using digital technologies?” By positioning youth as co‐researchers, the teams disrupted traditional hierarchical power structures in their homes. The inquiry uncovered a process of building mutual trust through open communication and mediated decision making that empowered adolescents to critique adults' and peers' technology practices while reflecting on their own literacy development.
