Smartphone Free Childhood – UK website

A new campaign for 2024

From their website:

97% of 12-year-olds in Britain have a smartphone.
When children started getting them, there was no research about their impact. Now there is, and it’s overwhelming.
Smartphones expose children to harmful content, raise the likelihood of developing a mental illness and are highly addictive. 
But parents have been put in an impossible position. 
Either we give our children access to something that opens the door to porn, bullying, grooming and the anxiety machine that is social media, or we risk alienating them from their peers.
Regulation hasn’t caught up with the technology, so it’s parents and children that lose out.
We started Smartphone Free Childhood to give power back to parents, and to kickstart the change society needs.
