One Third Of Low-Income Babies Use Mobile Devices Before They Can Walk or Talk

One Third Of Low-Income Babies Use Mobile Devices Before They Can Walk or Talk | Online Business Manager's POV | Scoop.it
The mobile revolution is changing everything -- and I mean everything, including early childhood. This week brought the publication of a new study of mobile device usage by babies and toddlers from
the UC San Diego School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics. Among the study's fairly disturbing findings was this tidbit:

 

One third of babies brought to a clinic serving a low-income urban area were using mobile devices before they could walk or talk.

 

Of the 370 parents surveyed, 83% reported owning tablets, 77% owned smartphones, and 59% had Internet access at home via desktop computers. Fifty-two percent of those kids younger than one year of age had watched TV shows, 36% had used a touchscreen device, and 24% had called someone on the phone. And 15% had used apps, while 12% had played video games.

 

Some six-months-olds were using mobile devices for up to half an hour a day. In fact, one in seven toddlers in the survey set used a mobile device for at least an hour a day. I think that warrants a “yikes!”
