(NBC NEWS) — A new report is shedding light on teens and their screens!
Researchers with Common Sense Media surveyed over 1,600 adolescents about their use of electronic media.
On average, 8-to-12 year-olds reported nearly five hours of screen time a day while teens reported about seven and a half hours.
That does not include the use of screens at school or for homework.
Also, the percentage of those who watch online videos on a daily basis has doubled since 2015.
Another finding from the report, more than half said they had their own phone by age 11 and 69-percent had one by age 12.
