The spread of MIM and LINE in new immigrants’ families has changed parent-child communication. Through in-depth interviews of 20 families, the research results are shown as follow.
First, MIM communication is quite diverse. Most interviewees think that MIM is an extension of FTF, and some interviewees feel that MIM and FTF are not too different. The focus is on the content of the message. In addition, MIM allows people in communication to avoid interaction by ignoring messages, and parents can monitor their children through MIM. Second, MIM creates gendered communication. Women are good at using stickers and sharing soft articles to promote a dialogue atmosphere, which is different from men, and indirectly transforms men’s traditional cognition of gender roles. However, MIM and LINE enable new immigrants’ families to discuss discrimination issues more frankly. Furthermore, MIM communication strategy has both rational and perceptual characteristics. According to different communication situations, children will choose communication strategies of different attributes to interact with their parents. Finally, parent-child communication among new immigrants’ families has undergone a qualitative change due to MIM. In addition to the division of labor and the transformation of gender cognition, MIM enables new immigrants’ families to feel the precious connection of eternal connection, and also pay more attention to the meaning of communication and information of technology domestication.
