71% of children aged 5-15 have access to a tablet computer at home.
72% of children age 8 and under have used a mobile device.
17% of children under 3 own their own smart phone or tablet.

The graphic also provides advice to parents on what technology kids should and should not be using. With the ever increasing amount of technology available, it is important that parents monitor their children’s use of it.
