Injuries To Young Children Up Due To Smartphones

Injuries to young children are on the rise, and many experts believe it’s at least partially due to parents being distracted by their smartphones.

It makes since if you think about it.  Think about how much time out of the day we spend checking our phones.  Something has to give.

We are not as productive at work because of smartphones, texting is causing fatalities behind the wheel across the globe and there is no way parents are watching their children as attentively as they did before the internet, Facebook and Twitter.

A recent study found that almost 70% of injuries among two-year-olds occurred while the child was unsupervised.  The dangers of driving and even walking while texting, tweeting or otherwise staring at your iPhone have already been well established.  Now it seems we need to add “parenting” to the list of things you shouldn’t do while using your phone.
