"A lot of today’s parents work hard on the job then come home to commitments and family demands," said power parent Landry. "It can be easy to fall into the trap of mixing work with family time. That’s why it’s paramount for busy parents to have a smartphone like LG Viper 4G LTE that is not only dependable, but easily fits into their lifestyle. LG Viper 4G LTE makes its easier for me to stay connected with family, friends and business partners, and its technology and wide variety of useful apps allow me to juggle my personal and professional time in this fast-paced world."

LG also used this event as a platform to announce the results of a study about parents’ use of smartphones. The survey of 2,222 U.S. adults (ages 18 and older) who have children ages 3 through 12 and own a smartphone was commissioned by LG Mobile and conducted online by Harris Interactive. The survey uncovered surprising statistics about parenting and smartphone use:
- Smartphones are an integral part of parents’ lives—and more than half (57 percent) of all parents surveyed rely on their smartphones to keep them on track. More than two-thirds of these parents who are employed agree having a smartphone enables them to have a better work/life balance.
- Smartphones allow parents to stay in touch, but maybe a little too much. 62 percent of parents with smartphones indicate they check or use their smartphone during family time.
- Smartphones keep the family connected, but they also keep the family distracted. Almost two-thirds (63 percent) of parents with smartphones surveyed give their smartphone to their children to entertain them.
- Parents also are using smartphones to bond with their children. Nearly one-third (27 percent) of parents from the survey indicate they have read a book to their children from a smartphone.
