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.
