“Hey mom, can you put down the iPad and help me with my homework?”

In the past, the highest amount of technology use has always been associated with teenagers. Turning this assumption on its head, a new study out of Sweden reveals that 33% of Swedish parents surveyed (521 total) admitted that their phone and tablet use was a sore point with their kids.

Even more shockingly, the study results also indicated that 20% of parents surveyed had lost their child, because they were paying more attention to their phones. In retrospect, perhaps the Tamagotchi should have been marketed better over in Sweden.

I have to admit that I am guilty with this survey. As a mom, I am quite busy with my online job so I frequently check mails and face my computer the whole that sometimes my my little kid would suddenly burst out and say that I am not listening to him.
