52 percent of kids under age 8 have access to mobile media

Mobile devices have become mini-pacifiers/babysitters for many wee ones: 52 percent of all children 8 and younger have access to mobile devices at home like a smartphone, video iPod, iPad or other tablet, according to Common Sense Media, a nonprofit group that studies children’s use of technology.

Senh: It's tough to keep our smartphones or tablets away from them. It feels so intuitive to them. They can get their hands on it and instantly interact with it. Let's just hope the radiation emitted from these devices don't cause much harm to their little developing brains.
