Excerpt from The Toronto Star -- "Most teenagers are checking their phones 150 times per day—that is, once every six minutes. Add it all up and they’re spending more than seven hours a day looking at their smartphones—and that’s outside of school or homework! As New York University marketing professor Adam Alter points out, this means that over the course of their lives our kids are going to spend at least seven years immersed in their phones."
