A new survey from Common Sense Media found that:

  • Half of teens and over one-quarter of parents feel they’re addicted to their mobile devices.
  • At least a few times a week, more than three-quarters of parents and 41 percent of teens feel the other gets distracted by a device and doesn’t pay attention when they’re trying to talk.
  • Seventy-two percent of teens and 48 percent of parents feel the need to immediately respond to texts, social-networking messages, and other notifications.
  • Despite conflicts, most parents feel their teens’ use of mobile devices has made no difference or has even helped their relationship.
