More Babies Exposed to Mobile Devices

Seven out of 10 children younger than 8 have used a mobile device, a figure that has doubled in two years, according to a report released by Common Sense Media. This shows for the first time the development of a true digerati generation from cradle onward.

The findings come amid increased concern over the time children spend online as families snap up gadgets, game consoles and computers. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has advised parents to limit their children’s time in front of screens, which it says may lead to attention problems, exposure to inappropriate content and obesity.
