How many hours do you spend each night arguing with your child over bedtime?

According to a global Netflix survey, the average parent spends up to 20 minutes fussing and fighting with their kids to go to bed. And of those 7,000 parents, spread across seven different countries, the study showed that American kids are more likely to try and stall bedtime using some pretty creative tactics.

"But I'm not tired."

"I'm thirsty."

"What about a bedtime snack?"

"Just five more minutes!"

Netflix wants to help end this problem and is offering a possible solution for bargaining.

While on Netflix, under either the regular or kids tab, search for "5 Minute Favorites" and you'll get three episodes of "Dinotrux 5 Minute Favorites." It's a new series with, you guessed it, five-minute episodes.

So now, when the little ones argue for five more minutes, you can let them watch one episode and follow the adventures of Ty-Rux and Revvit, then it's lights out.

What do you think? Will this be enough to get your kid into bed at a decent hour? Or are your kids too clever? Let me know what you think by posting in the comments below.
