At this stage, our three year old son only uses our iPhones to talk on the phone to talk to his grandparents who live out of town. But that won’t be the case for much longer. I can see him having a cell phone and possibly even a smartphone by the time he’s 6 or 7. That’s especially true if he’s in an after school program or needing transportation from school to sports or music lessons.
Just like me, other parents have concerns about their kids mobile device usage and the team at Zact conducted a survey to find out whats behind parents concerns.
Did you know 73% of U.S. parents are concerned about the lack of parental control of a child’s activities on mobile devices?
What are your biggest concerns for your kids when they have a smartphone? How do you talk to them about it?
See the Zact infographic below for other great statistics on kids and mobile usage.
