Parents claimed to use phone a lot

According to a new survey of Common Sense Media, parents say that they spend much of their time on their phones, a change from the reports of 2016 in which teens confess to spend much of their time on smartphones.

The report further highlights that, 50 percent of parents have said to spend more time in using phones whereas in 2016 three out of every 10 claimed this, and six of every 10 teens — on the other hand — agreed to use phone a lot. However, this year only 39 percent of them think that they engage with their devices too much.

However, both parents and teenagers can lessen their phone usage in which most of them use their phones right before going to bed and right after waking. These two are harmful habits.
