Kids rule the roost when it comes to what families are having for dinner, where they go on holiday – and even how to decorate the house.
A poll of 2,000 parents with children from 5-16 found 49 per cent claim their little ones usually have an input in the big household decisions – as 31 per cent think it makes for a ‘quieter life’.
While 34 per cent said their children have control over what plays on the car stereo, and 47 per cent allow youngsters their say on decorating their bedroom.
Culinary decisions are also not exempt from the kids’ control – as 43 per cent consult their offspring about the weekly grocery list, and 22 per cent ask for their meal of choice.
And when it comes to holidays, 62 per cent said family trips are improved when the children are involved in the decision-making process.
The research was commissioned by Haven Holidays as part of its campaign to recruit a team of ‘kidfluencers’ to dream up their ultimate summer holiday and turn their best suggestions into reality.
Sarah Chapman, chief customer officer for the holiday park company, said: “Parents who ‘pick and choose battles’ tend to find that this helps everything else around the home run smoothly.
“It’s encouraging to see parents of children as young as five are empowering their young ones to help make family decisions, both big and small, without them feeling that children are ‘ruling the roost’.
“When it comes to making holiday plans, consulting with children can help conserve spending too – as you won’t waste money on destinations or activities they don’t enjoy.”
