Our kids are becoming technology junkies but we already knew this, right?

I’m sure it goes without saying that the majority of us are addicted to checking our iPhones multiple times a day. And it’s not just our social media apps, but our emails, our text messages, the weather, the news, and so much more. We can’t help but click, tap and swipe multiple times a day to keep up with our digital worlds. For some of us it’s so bad that our smart phone addictions are just like having ‘digital crack.’

Unfortunately though our kids are watching and as most parents already know, they are repeating our every move throughout the day, whether we realize it or not. That’s why there’s a new report that says kids are doing something you wouldn’t believe while you think they are sleeping in bed!
