Soooo this may or may not depress you...
A new survey by musicMagpie finds that about 25% of children six and under actually own their own mobile device, This number is huge, considering most parents believe 11 is the “ideal” age for kids to get their first smartphone.
As for why parents are buying their kids their own tech, a third say their kid simply asked for it, while 20% did it to keep them entertained. And to top it off, 80% of parents say they don’t limit the time their kids are on their smartphones, with half of kids six and under spending as much as 21 hours per week on their devices.
Our country has a bright future.
