Distracted Parenting!


Caregivers of children (ages 0-10) were observed in fast-food restaurants typing and swiping on mobile devices--and spending less time paying attention to the child or children in their care. They also often reacted harshly to misbehavior or bids for attention. A surprising 40 of the 55 caregivers observed were engaged with a mobile device rather than the child.

PositiveTip: When taking care of children, give them your full attention, not your mobile device!
