Youth ministry is a process not only sharing Jesus with teenagers, but knowing how best to communicate with them, learning how to support parents as they raise their children, and different tips to help support children and keep them safe. Youth workers need to keep up-to-date with how teenagers are using their phones and promote healthy usage when they have a chance to speak into their lives. We want to help you with these teen mobile phone stats.
Here are some interesting stats for youth workers:
- Teens send over 48,000 texts a year. Many of them in the middle of the night.
- 70% of teens receive a text and 69% receive a call from someone not on their contact list.
- Parents who are proactive search through their children’s texting history, looked through their address book, and created alerts to notify about phone habits.
How do you help protect your teens in a mobile dominated world?
