Children Have More Negative Attitudes Towards Phones If Parents Spent 'Too Much' Time On It

Children whose parents are more aware of their online behaviour and experiences get more positives out of using technology, according to the new report.

A study conducted over the space of one year by online safety group Internet Matters into the impact of technology on parents and children in the same household concluded that children who found their parents on their phones “quite a lot” when they try to talk to them had more negative experiences with technology.

The study also found these effects increase as children get older. This is especially concerning given the impact of the pandemic of children and how the use of phones has gone up in that period.
