(Newser) – Some 30% of UK parents think playing with their children is boring, a new poll finds. The poll, commissioned by Disneyland Paris, looked at how parents spent recreational time with their children. More than a fifth hadn't played with their kids in such a long time that they had forgotten how, the Independent reports. The kicker? Many kids aren't fooled—15% said they realized their parents were bored while playing with them.

A study found that a full 21% of UK parents find playing with their kids boring.
