Do you know how much time your child is spending on mobile devices? It's up to about two hours a day, according to a new report.
Common Sense Media, a nonprofit organization that helps kids, parents and educators thrive in a world of technology, recently conducted a study to determine media use by children aged 0 to 8. To do so, they gave nearly 1,500 parents, with children aged 8 years old and younger, a survey that focused on their children's media use. The new questionnaire was a continuation of two that were completed in 2011 and 2013. After they analyzed the results, they found that children 8 and younger spend an average of two hours and 19 minutes a day fiddling with screen media - an amount that has tripled in four years.
But is that necessarily a bad thing? Parenting specialist Maria Luce answers that very question.
