Half of British kids will own a mobile by age eleven
Half of British children will own a mobile phone by the age of ELEVEN, according to new research.
The study of 2,000 parents shows the average child will receive a phone worth £120 on their eleventh birthday, and will then spend two hours every day glued to the device.
But four in 10 parents end up regretting giving their youngster a phone at such a young age - as by their teenage years the child is transfixed by the likes of social media, texts, and computer games.
