Half of the 800 moms and dads involved in a market research study conducted by Miner & Co. Studio explained that they punish their children, ages 2-12, by taking away access to computers, tablets and smartphones and then making the children watch TV.

They all chose time with the digital device. – Angela Tague, Parenting.com
