Studies show that mobile phones are an important part of youth lifestyle and culture. In establishing this, it is important to know how youth themselves perceive the importance of mobile phones in their life. Our research was based on a sample of 6th and 9th graders from Slovenia (n = 820). The data was collected using a questionnaire. The study showed that the most common reason for using mobile phones is to communicate with other pupils and the reason for having a mobile phone is to be connected with others. Moreover, various feelings and fears connected to mobile phone use are experienced by pupils. The study also revealed some possible dangers of MPs use by pupils. Based on the results, it is necessary to raise pupils’ awareness of the safe, moderate and critical use of mobile phones in their everyday life.
The article addresses the parents’ anxiety during the separation from their child in the first days of stay in a nursery. For a parent, who is the first attachment figure for a child, separation is extremely difficult and stressful. The aim of presented research was to verify whether and to what extent, on the basis of such factors as the level of trait anxiety, gender, age of the parent or the number of children in the family, it is possible to predict the level of parents’ anxiety when entrusting children to nursery care. The study was done using State-Trait Anxiety Inventory [STAI] scale and short questionnaire regarding the age and family conditions. Results indicate that the factors predicting the level of state anxiety of the parents who entrust the care of their children to nurseries, were the parent’s gender and the level of their trait anxiety. Mothers had significantly higher levels of anxiety than fathers, and the level of anxiety as a state was higher in parents who generally experienced higher anxiety measured as trait anxiety.

This qualitative paper analyses the parental English language input strategies adopted to make children ready for English medium preschools.
