Turns Out Most Parents Are On Their Phones More Than Their Kids!

How much time are you on your phone every day? According to a new survey, parents spend an average of close to five hours a day on electronic devices, which is more than the less than four hours they spend doing meaningful activities with their kids.

The poll of 2-thousand moms and dads reveals:

  • Six in 10 parents admit they spend more time on their screens than their kids do.
  • The majority of parents (80%) own three electronic devices or more, while 81% of their kids own at least two electronic devices of their own.
  • Only 2% of kids don’t own any devices at all.
  • All that screen time may be why 60% of parents are looking for ways to get away from technology and reconnect with their kiddos this summer.
  • Just over half (52%) of parents have tried to limit screen time in their household.
  • And 79% say their experiences with their kids are more memorable when electronic devices aren’t involved.
  • Parents admit they feel a positive shift in parenting when they’re enjoying outdoor activities, with 72% feeling like they’re able to focus more on family time and 52% feeling more relaxed when outside.
  • Top summer activities parents are planning for their family include camping and hiking (59%), having picnics or meals outside (58%), going to amusement parks or water parks (58%) and exploring new places and traveling (58%).
