More than half of parents say they spend too much time on their mobile device, while nearly half of teens say they spend the right amount of time on their devices.

Those are among the findings of a new report from the group Common Sense called "The New Normal: Parents, Teens, Screens and Sleep in the United States," which also finds nearly 40% of teens think their parent is addicted to their device, and 45% of parents seem to agree.

To talk more about this, The Show reached out to Ilana Lowery, Arizona director for Common Sense.
