Kids & Technology

The way kids are growing up is changing. Instead of one TV with limited hours, a new study finds kids are using devices early and often:

  • 97% of parents let children use mobile devices (Most before their first birthday)
  • 75% of kids own their own mobile device by age 4
  • 28% of parents use a mobile device to put kids to sleep

Parents need guidance – not a guilt trip! I talked with WCCO about some ways parents can tap into technology in a positive way.
