The answer depends on where you live.
According to the Consumer Electronics Association, which represents the mobile phone industry, nearly two-thirds of all Americans have no idea that there are children’s mobile phones available for purchase.
That means the vast majority of parents who own a smartphone don’t have the information to know whether a child is using it, the organization says.
More than half of Americans say they have no clue how much they spend on mobile phones, according to a new survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
More than 70% said they don’t know the price, or how many they buy.
And just over half of parents surveyed said they buy children’s phones in bundles.
The survey of 2,001 adults conducted by the AP-NOR CPR Research Center and the University of Southern California showed that parents in the United States spend more than $5 billion annually on mobile devices, a figure that includes smartphones, tablets, tablets and laptops.
“Parents don’t realize how much money they’re spending on their childrens devices, and parents often don’t ask the right questions,” says David Gans, president of the APCPR, a research and advocacy organization based in Los Angeles.
But some parents have the right information.
A few years ago, the APCO, a trade association representing the phone industry in the U.S., released a survey that showed that nearly half of the American adults surveyed didn’t know how much children’s smartphone prices were.
Many parents also don’t want to be associated with child abuse.
A study by the Pew Research Center in 2012 found that almost three-quarters of American parents didn’t think it was appropriate for a parent to have an online chat with a child about their child’s cellphone use.
The survey also found that nearly two thirds of parents didn�t think parents should have access to child pornography.
“Children are a critical part of our lives and have a tremendous impact on our families,” Gans says.
“But the data show that parents are generally not aware of the costs of smartphones.”
What are the biggest concerns about kids smartphones?
According to the APA-NOR study, parents of kids younger than 12 are more likely to own a cellphone than parents of older children.
That’s because the average age of children’s smartphones has risen from 16 to 18, according the APAC study.
More and more parents are choosing to buy smartphones in the face of rising prices.
That means that the smartphone companies have to develop new products and services to keep up with demand.
The APA and NORC research suggests that some parents don’t understand how smartphones work.
The consumer electronics trade group says that parents of younger children should know that a smartphone is a “mini computer” that can run apps.
It also recommends that parents understand the “smart” functions of the phone.
