Today, if we ask parents what their children are doing right now, they might not know. Not that they have no idea about what activities their children are engaged in though. They might be aware that their children are surfing online, but have no idea about the specific content of those online activities. According to a Kaiser study (Kaiser Family Foundation) , if children are awake and are not in school, they are most likely staring at a smartphone, a computer, or watching television. This Kaiser study reveals just how addicted todays’ children are to social media and technology. This study further suggests that media, from television to the social and electronic media such as cell phones, iPads, and Facebook, has become a dominant force in children’s lives. 1- http://kff.org/other/event/generation-m2-media-in-the-lives-of/
