Does Your Mobile Device Make You a Better Parent? [Poll]
With some of my recent posts about taking a break from your mobile devices (Flipd and Quality Time), random things related to this topic seems to be catching my eye. Today, while looking for something completely different, I ran into this some interesting statistics about how we look at ourselves and our mobile use.
The part that stood out was this little nugget:
Percent who say their mobile device make them better parents: 68%
Interesting, right? Apparently, the source of this data is a study by Qualcomm pretty recently. There seems to be a prior one as an infographic over at Time as well. Of course, it comes as no surprise that a study by Qualcomm would end up being positive in regards to mobile devices and their use. The Time infograph shows this percentage at 65% so apparently our view of how beneficial our mobile devices is improving.
The question is: can this poll really be accurate?? Do we really think that our mobile devices are making us better parents or are we deluded and so in denial that we think they are? This is where Id like to hear from you through by conducting a simple poll. Please participate below and by all means, feel free to share your thoughts as well in the comments section.
