Kids and the Internet – What are they Doing?

In the internet age, the kids are all right- that is, as long as their parents pay attention to their online activities. And according to a poll, most of them do. It found almost 80% of parents talk to their children about internet safety. That’s a good thing, seeing as 95% of kids between the ages of 12 and 15 own at least one smartphone, tablet or other media device. And kids in that age group spend 17 hours on the web in the average week. So what exactly are young people doing with their gadgets? Texting is the number-one activity for eight-to-15-year-olds, followed by phone calls and taking photos. Still, you can’t protect your children from everything, and when it comes to the internet, that’s even more true. The poll found almost 60% of kids have accidentally accessed some kind of inappropriate material online. And nearly 20% of 12-to-15-year-olds know how to disable parental controls. So much for that.
