 Modern Brit Parents No Longer Sing Lullabies For Kids
Your mom's lullabies might be one of your favourite childhood memories, but the tradition of singing bedtime songs for kids is now dying out in modern day Britain, according to a new research.

The research, commissioned by confectionary firm Jakemans, has revealed that the rapid pace of life in modern Britain has killed the traditional lullaby.

It has shown that parents these days have no time to sing lullabies or other songs to their children before bedtime.

Two-thirds of mums and dads say they do not sing as often as their own parents did.

Many parents have also admitted that they do not even know the words of classic lullabies such as 'Rock-a-bye Baby' and 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'.

"It's such a shame. This is our culture, it enriches us," the Daily Express quoted sociologist Patricia Morgan as saying.
