Almost half of all parents surveyed are worried about their kids being addicted to smartphones. What do you think? I think YES. You see it all around and I don't know if it can even be stopped. Basically, by the time kids are 3 or older, they're hooked into their smartphones / tablets basically 24/7.
This also always raises the question, how young is too young for kids to have smartphones? This is very tough because it seems to be happening earlier and earlier. Peer pressure is legit not just for kids, but for parents as well. While I don't have kids myself, the fear of being left out for kids is something with which we can all relate. I always say "you don't want your kid to be the only kid in class without -----," right?
Ugh. This is tough. What do you think? Are kids too addicted to smartphones? Is there a fix of simply managing their screen time? How old is too old, that's always a tough one. You can see the study by clicking here.
