Bedtime Lullabies Being Pushed Out By Pop Songs

Parents are ditching traditional lullabies to sing their children to sleep in favour of chart-topping pop songs, according to a study reported by The Daily Mail.

A feeling that songs such as 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' are 'old-fashioned' and 'silly' emerged as the reasons with other moms and dads admitting they struggle to recall latter verses of the old favorites.

Instead, with many parents now listening to modern pop tunes on the radio or television, youngsters now favor Adele, Bruno Mars or Rihanna tunes over classics like Rock a Bye Baby.

Half of the 2,000 parents polled even admitted their children preferred singing along to chart toppers, with just 15 per cent still favoring nursery rhymes and lullabies.
