Once the kids are asleep, most parents
sit back, relax, and unwind using electronics. A vast majority of both mothers and fathers watch TV
or movies, according to a survey by the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy
at Brigham Young University.
Mothers tend to use the quiet hours after the kids are asleep to connect with others, using social media and talking on the phone and texting at higher rates than fathers report. Both mothers and fathers in the study played video games at roughly equal rates. All the digital activities that parents engage in provide an opportunity for marketers to reach this demographic, who use this time for themselves on connected and marketable channels.
