 'Addicted to Cellphones' Common In 8 Out Of 10 Brit Kids
A new-fangled survey has found that eighty percent of all Brit kids are addicted to their mobile phones.

According to www.youngpoll.com, one in three children feel "alone" without the phone and almost half sleep next to it.

Children spend nearly six hours on mobiles a day - talking, texting and playing music or games, the study found.

The survey also found that kids send as many as 19 texts and make eight calls a day.

"It is tricky to get the right balance and make sure phones are not too much of a distraction," The Sun quoted a spokesman for www.youngpoll.com, as saying.
