According to a new study, kids in the UK are addicted to their screens and spend as much as ten hours per day staring at TVs and laptops. The study was conducted by npower and shows that an average kid spends 9 hours and 54 minutes watching screens.

According to the study 2 hours and 43 minutes of that time is spent watching TV. The study also claims that kids spend 54 minutes per day looking at playlists on their iPods.

"The summer holidays are traditionally a time when you expect children to be outdoors playing with their friends," said Clare McDougall, Education Programme Director from npower. But the lure of technology has made it harder to get young people to switch off. We found three-quarters of children aged seven have a television in their room."
