Kids are out-quizzing their parents!

Hey everyone, 

 

We have a very popular weekly quiz on the community hosted by Mi-Amigo which has really helped to bring our community together in spirit of friendly competition yahoo Some recent data released by O2 has shown that this same friendly competition has helped to bring parents and children closer as a family during the lockdown and found quizzes to be one of the best forms of entertainment!

 

  • 25% of UK parents surveyed acknowledge that quizzes have brought them closer to their children
  • With almost a fifth (19%) voting quiz nights as one of their top choices of family entertainment during lockdown
  • O2 in partnership with the NSPCC launch the first ever mass virtual Parents vs Kids quiz on 30th May to help bring households together while isolating
  • Have your knowledge rewarded by O2, with prizes up for grabs

 

Following the successful launch of the Parents vs Kids quiz in 2018, O2 and the NSPCC are launching the first ever mass Parents vs Kids live-stream quiz. The quiz, designed to encourage family conversations about online safety, will take place at 4pm on Saturday 30th May, when the nation’s parents take on their children to see who comes out on top.

 

The findings, revealed by O2 in a poll of 1000 UK-based parents (of children aged 4-16), discovered that just over 3 in 10 parents (31%) admit that quizzes have helped them to engage more with their children during lockdown, while over a quarter (27%) said quizzes have helped to spark important conversations within the household.

 

The sense of competition was named by parents as the key way to create conversation as kids look to show off their superior knowledge. While parents are taking a more relaxed approach, kids are out to win, with 16% admitting that they are usually beaten by their children. Over a quarter (28%) of parents say they’re best at general knowledge, but surprisingly their children are putting them to shame on music questions.

 

Tracey Herald, Head of Partnerships and Social Impact at O2 said: During lockdown, children are spending more time online than ever before, so it’s important that parents feel equipped to help their children safely navigate it too. We know that sometimes it can be difficult to start conversations about online safety – the quiz provides a perfect way to have some family fun while learning about the online world together. Up to 1000 households can take part in the quiz – so it’s a great way for parents and kids to test their knowledge and compete with other families across the UK.”

 

In between home-schooling and daily exercise, parents surveyed said that they are still managing to fit in an average of two quizzes per week with their kids, while over two-thirds have said watching TV and films (64%) rank as popular choices of entertainment for the whole family and over a third (36%) said the same for puzzles and board games.

 

Laura Randall, Head of Strategy at the NSPCC said: “At the NSPCC we know how important open conversations about online safety are, particularly at this challenging time for families. We launched the Parents vs Kids quiz in partnership with O2 to encourage families to get together and take part in something fun that would spark conversations about the online world.”

Hi @Martin-O2
O2 do seem to be helpful in many ways through this pandemic. Always good when businesses get involved.
I like the idea of the quizz very much. TallTrees
