Parents reveal what kids tell them off for

Parents across the UK are no strangers to getting into trouble and being told off by their children according to a new poll.

The poll by the charity BookTrust, commissioned to launch its Christmas appeal, shows that parents of 7-13 year-olds are pulled up for using swearing words (47%), for doing something they’ve told their kids not to do (32%), and for spending too much time on screens or their phone (31%).

But kids aren’t just asking their parents to mind their manners, they’re also the ones pushing their parents to be more socially and environmentally minded.

Aston spoke to Gemma Malley, director of BookTrust to discuss the research in further detail.
