ARE KIDS ADDICTED TO SMART PHONES?

I think it’s safe to say many of us spend too long on our phones.

We’d probably be shocked if we knew just how many times we check them each day.

They can be distracting and even isolating.

What’s even more concerning, is the number of kids and young people who are glued to their mobiles.

MIX 106.3 Breakfast co-host Kristen Henry was shocked to hear some worrying stats on The Project last night..

68% of Aussie kids have a smartphone and they spend, on average, just under 22 hours a week on it.

It prompted Kristen and Wilko to ask listeners – what are your phone rules?

At Wilko’s family gatherings, they all have to put their phones in a basket, to ensure there’s no distractions.

They also heard some other interesting stories..

What are you family’s phone rules? Have your say at our Facebook page!
