More than 50 percent of American parents say their kids have damaged a mobile phone, laptop, tablet or another portable device, costing moms and dads more than $2.8 billion in repairs and replacements.
A third of kid-caused accidents with mobile devices involved food or drink:
- 50 percent involved milk
- 19 percent involved chocolate
- 17 percent involved candy
- 16 percent involved yogurt
And boys were 35 percent more likely than girls to have caused the accident.
