New figures released by HomeHalo reveal that children younger than eight years old are already mastering technology including tablets and mobile phones, before they can even read.

A poll of Netmums subscribers revealed that 2.1 million UK households now have eight or more gadgets that are accessible to and usable by children.

Furthermore, it’s estimated that technology is the root of 8 million daily arguments among UK families.

To discuss the findings and children’s use of technology Sebastian Edgington-Cole spoke to psychologist and life coach Honey Langcaster-James. You can listen to their conversation on the link above.
