November 11th, 2013 by · 3 Comments · infographic

I’ve always131106_Kids_Media_Mashable thought kids and fragile electronics have a hypergolic relationship, but based on a recent survey not all parents share my opinion.

A new infographic reveals that at least some parents let their kids use their smartphone. The infographic is drawn from a recent survey report (PDF) by Common Sense Media, and it’s based on a survey which was conducted in June 2013. A total of 1,463 parents, all with 1 or more child under 8, were polled about their kid’s media habits.

The report revealed that 4% of kids under 8 have read an ebook, which is double the number who had done so when this survey was last conducted in 2011. The number of kids using a computer has remained constant at 14%, while mobile device use has increased significantly (8% to 17%).
