Finnish children play up to 2 hours' mobile games/day

Friday 16 January 2015 | 12:34 CET | News
Finnish telecommunications provider Elisa said children play mobile games for one to two hours a day, and most parents said they had discussed the games and the rules with their offspring. At the same time, though, children sometimes happen upon content inappropriate for their age, and parents do not always know what the child is doing online. Elisa is opening a new website at elisa.fi/perheille to support parents.
