The findings come from a study of 5,000 mothers and fathers by National Family Week.

More than half of parents have felt that mobile phones and online networking overly preoccupy their children, reports the Daily Express.

Three quarters are of the opinion that modern technology has had a negative impact on family life, with 17 percent citing texting in particular and 37 percent banning mobile phones or laptops at the dinner table.
