Effects of Tech on Children


OMG BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHIL-DREN?!

This study is based on US research – however I would argue that these percentages resonate significantly elsewhere…

Here are some highlights from the findings below:

  1. 66% of parents actually speak to their children about Social Media safety.
  2. Children over the age of 2 are spending twice the amount on-screens than in books.
  3. 42% of children Under 8 have a TV in their room – while 73% of parents say they would like to limit the amount of time their children watch TV.

It’s hard to say which is worse; the impact of technology on our children, or the lack of intervention by parents..?
