Common Sense Report Shows Parents Spend Nine Hours Daily With Screen Media

Dec 6, 2016

SCREENS EVERYWHERE: A new report released today by San Francisco-based nonprofit Common Sense Media says that parents spend more than nine hours per day interacting with screen media—think tablets, phones and laptops. Ironically, the report also says that 56% of the 1,700 parents of children (age 8 to 18) surveyed are concerned that their children will or are becoming addicted to technology. "These findings are fascinating because parents are using media for entertainment just as much as their kids, yet they express concerns about their kids' media use while also believing that they are good role models for their kids," said James Steyer, CEO of Common Sense.
