 It’s a common sight that children instinctively clicking keypads or swiping their fingers across screens before they even learn to speak. Questions on children’s use of hand phone are targeted at school going youngest child of the respondent. Caution is required in the use of this statistic as it is not representative of child population.

Based on the survey, 33.9% of school going youngest children of the respondent, own a hand phone. Mode age of first ownership is 13 to 15. Most children will get their first hand phone at the age of 12. The survey found that the lowest age of first ownership of a respondent’s child is 5 and the child also access the Internet using his smartphone.

57.6% of child hand phone owners have a smartphone. We further probed respondents to examine their children’s mobile Internet behavior. 50.4% of all child hand phone users access the mobile Internet using their hand phones.



The survey also examined parents’ concerns on hand phone usage among their children and how they respond to those concerns.

The question of allowing schoolchildren to bring hand phones to school never really subsided. It has perhaps faded from public debate but simmers in private households whenever junior asks dad for a hand phone because all his other friends already have one.

 An overwhelming 85.6% of parents referring to school-going youngest child are against the idea of bringing hand phone to school.


Data reclassified by gender of user over 25 years old with school-going youngest child yielded the following tables:

The fathers are more likely to allow their school going youngest child to bring hand phone to school than the mother.


Among parents of children with a hand phone, 58.8% limit their child’s outgoing call counts and 46.8% of all parents surveyed set a limit on their child’s conversation length. Over 70% of parents have concerns over what content their children are viewing through their hand phones. These days, the trend of kids being digitally grounded by forbidding the use of electronic devices, access to social networking sites and use of hand phones are becoming famous. This survey found that 44.8% of parents confiscate their children’s hand phone as a form of punishment.
