Parents To Blame For Devices Interfering With Family Time: Study

University Study Shows Kids Want Mom & Dad To Put The Smartphone Down

A new study says if you’re looking for more quality family time, put down the device… parents. The University of Michigan talked to hundreds of families, asking their kids I’d they could impose one rule in their parents, what would it be? A majority said they’d like mom and dad to put down the mobile device and actually listen. Next on the list was having parents ask the kid’s permission before posting pictures of them to Facebook. Looks like kids are a little more conscience of safety too, asking that parents stop texting and driving.
