Smartphones May Harm Your Family Life, a New Study Finds
A new study suggests that such mobile devices as smartphones and tablets are harmful to family life as they can distract people from the process of bringing up children, interfering with family routines and creating stressful situations at home.
22 mothers, 9 fathers and 4 grandmothers participated in the study. They were between 23 and 55 years old and cared for toddlers or young children up to age 8.
