Do You Know How Your Kids Use Their Phones?

Easy access to mobile devices like cell phones and iPods has significantly changed the way kids use media.

Over the past five years, there has been a huge increase in gadget ownership among 8-18-year-olds: from 39% to 66% for cell phones, and from 18% to 76% for iPods and other MP3 players. Young people now spend more time listening to music, playing games, and watching TV on their cell phones (an average of 49 minutes a day) than they spend talking on them (average 33 minutes a day).

PositiveTip: Monitor your kids’ cell phone use. Know how they are using their technology. It’s important!
