Last week, Ofcom published a report showing alarming statistics regarding the time pre-schoolers and school aged children spend online. These are truly frightening statistics showing that time spend on tablets and online is ever increasing.
Some of the findings are staggering:
- Three- and four-year-olds are online for an average of 71 minutes per day, or eight hours, 18 minutes a week – an hour and a half more than a year ago.
- The research found that a third of pre-school age children own their own media device, such as a tablet or games console.
