Parents On Phones Just As Much As Kids

Don’t let your kids see this article, they’ll probably use it against you.

A research group did a survey of parents, and after talking to 1,800 parents, they gathered some pretty interesting numbers. The overall average amount of time that parents spent on their devices (phone, TV, computer) per day worked out to about 9 hours and 22 minutes. But the numbers go further than that. On average, about 7 hours 43 minutes of that time is for personal time, and the remaining hour and a half or so was for work.

78 percent of the parents interviewed – who gave these numbers – said that they felt like they were a good device-role-model for their kids. It also was determined that the higher the level of education the parent has, the less time they spent on personal tech-activities.

Over 7 hours a day for personal device-time is competitive with most kids we see around these days. Check out more on the study here.
