Table - Generation V's Daily Time Spent With Media By Device

Younger children are spending less time overall in front of screens, according to an October 2013 survey of US parents with kids ages 8 and younger conducted by nonprofit organization Common Sense Media. The survey found that, on average, the total amount of time per day kids spent in front of a device with a screen was 1 hour and 55 minutes in 2013, down from 2 hours and 16 minutes in 2011.

Interestingly, time spent in front of stationary devices, such as televisions, DVDs and PCs, all declined. Meanwhile, time spent with mobile devices—such as a smartphone or tablet—tripled over the two-year period, reaching 15 minutes this year, up from 5 minutes two years earlier. Read the rest at eMarketer.
