A recent Nanyang Technological University (NTU) survey revealed that most (95 per cent) primary school students use digital technology at home. 

And among the 95 per cent who use it, 85 per cent of them used it for leisure. 

The survey, led by three undergraduates from NTU's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication, was conducted on more than 500 parents of primary school students. 

In the survey, key concern of parents include a child's exposure to inappropriate content, excessive use of digital technology, and addiction. 

Additionally, eight in ten parents saw the need to manage their child's use of digital technology. 

The study also explored the issue of managing children's use of digital technology. 

It forms part of a public information campaign titled Screensavers which seeks to contribute to the nurturing of healthier digital kids.
