On average, mothers have downloaded about 11 apps for their smartphone, but four of the applications have been for the child to use. Forty percent of moms allow their children to play games on their smartphone each day and 35 percent allow their child to use the smartphone for at least an hour each day.
Kids mobile games are dangerous. Recent studies have shown that approximately 65% of the free mobile applications are advertising pornography. Kids are being bombarded with advertisements containing inappropriate content that are prohibited in traditional media.
