Do Smartphones Steal Childhoods?

Raising a child in the cyber-centric age that we are in, brings with it a whole host of debates to be had. At what age should children get a mobile phone? Should mobiles be allowed or used in schools? How much time is spent on them?

loveit coverit have created an ongoing wide-scale campaign that looks into the impact that smartphones have on our everyday life. One aspect of the project investigates the positive and negative effects that mobile phones have on childhoods, and discusses topics like cyberbullying, school policies and the role that charities and the authorities play. The campaign features interviews and quotations from a secondary school headteacher, a representative from the charity Childnet, a psychologist and an editor from a teaching magazine. This infographic summarises findings from our independent research which surveys parents across the UK and demonstrates the primary concerns of parents, how they monitor their children’s phone usage and at what age they would give their child a phone.
