SHAILA on April 01, 2013

Used to be that most internet use happened on the family computer. Not anymore. One in 2 kids who have a smartphone or tablet use it as the primary window to the internet. 61% of parents believe they limit internet time, while only 37% of kids feel there are limits. The gap is telling as 66% of parents admit their kids know more about the internet than they themselves do.
