The children are very good.
But what about parents?
Since 2016, adults have become more concerned about the time they spend on mobile devices, even if their teenage children are less and less worried about their use, according to a new report from the non-profit children\'s advocacy and media rating organization \"Common Sense Media.
\"If you are worried that more and more parents are using their own devices, then you should be able to pass on that wisdom to your children,\" James P said . \"
Steyer, chief executive of the organization.
\"That\'s your job.
The report, released on Wednesday, based on a survey of 500 parents and teenagers, found that the two groups had a complex relationship with these devices --
Of course, the same is true between each other.
Most parents are worried that their children are addicted to these devices, but about 4 out of every 10 teenagers have the same concerns about their parents.
Here are some of the key findings of the report:
Steyer and report author Michael Robb said the most worrying thing is how parents and teenagers allow mobile devices to interfere with sleep.
\"This is important because we know that healthy sleep is associated with a range of positive outcomes, and that poor sleep is associated with a range of negative outcomes,\" he said . \"
Robb, senior director of Common Sense Media Research.
According to the survey conducted on February and 3 through the Internet and telephone, 26% of parents said they used mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets within five minutes of falling asleep.
The same share admitted waking up at least once in the evening to check the device, while a slightly smaller share of 23% said they used one within five minutes of waking up.
The ratio of adolescents is higher: 40% said they used a device within five minutes of sleeping;
waking up to view the equipment;
32% said they used a device within five minutes of waking up.
\"This is a huge wake-up call --
The gentleman said, \"call.
Together with his wife and four children, Steyer sleeps with his mobile phone in a separate room.
The study found that teenagers are more than twice as likely to sleep on their mobile phones in bed as adults, with 29% of teenagers and 12% of adults acknowledging the practice.
The results of the survey were adjusted to reflect the actual demographic data of adolescent parents.
The error amplitude is about 4. 4 percent.
Strangely, the Common Sense Media found that while parents are getting stuck on their mobile phones, the attitude of teenagers is the opposite.
\"This is very interesting and unexpected . \"Robb said.
For example, 52% of parents said this year that they spent too much time on mobile devices, almost twice as much as in 2016.
Among teenagers, only 39% said they spent too much time on these devices, down sharply from 61%.
The proportion of parents who are \"addicted\" to their devices has risen from 45% to 27%, while the proportion of adolescents who say this has dropped from 39% to 50%.
It is not clear why attitudes between parents and teenagers differ.
Robb provides some theory.
Parents may be internalizing extensive news coverage of the impact of smartphone use, he said.
On the other hand, children may be suffering from normalization, as fewer and fewer teenagers remember some time before such equipment became popular.
However, in actual use, the two groups seem to have been integrated: 42% of parents say they check the device several times an hour, while 43% of teenagers say the same.
He said it was one of the weirdest findings in the investigation.
Robb, parents and teenagers are more worried about each other\'s use, but there is less debate about it.
The survey found that about 4 out of every 10 teenagers today think their parents are addicted to their mobile devices or spend too much time.
Among parents, six out of ten are worried that their children are addicted to mobile phones, and seven out of ten say their children spend too much time on their phones.
However, for both groups, the share of the debate about how others use mobile devices has fallen from third to fifth on a daily basis.
\"There is less debate between children and parents, but at the same time they feel that the other party is more distracted ,\"Robb said.
\"This is a very strange discovery.
\"It is not clear why there is less and less debate in the home about the use of equipment,Robb and Mr.
Steyer said it could be caused by the indifference or resignation of mobile devices.
There is some hope, though: about two
According to the survey, 30 parents said they had family rules governing the use of mobile devices.
\"We have been saying for years that you need\" divine space \". Steyer said.
\"At certain times and locations, especially mobile phones, all digital platforms should not be present.
The bedroom is the most obvious.
