Parents may be able to pass on their famous gravy recipe, but did they know who Yung Gravy and Sheri Easterling were? when they made the headlines at the MTV VMAs on Sunday?

A new survey from OnePoll and kahoot asked 2,000 parents with children ages 3 to 12 and found that their children tend to get excited when their parents show interest or knowledge about something they like, according to 63% of adults.

Although two in five parents were familiar with the movies “Frozen” (43%) and “Moana” (42%), as well as the infamous “Baby Shark” (40%), only 29% of Cartoon Network show “Steven Universe .”

In the music department, only 24% of parents could identify themselves correctly Fifth Harmony as the girl group showed them in a photo. The “Work From Home” Singers announced an indefinite hiatus in March 2018, but broke the record for most Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards that same year.

Eighty-three percent of parents said they use trivia to get their kids excited about more serious topics, such as historical events that took place when they were young (41%), music (39%), and nature and animals (39%).

“Our results show that family screen time can play an important role in helping children make better choices for themselves with content and media, as 62% of parents saw their children being inspired to consume better content” D’Arcy added.

“In addition, 55% said their children create their own content as a result. Actively interacting with children, for example by playing games together, can help them develop better screen time habits.”
