New Study Says Parenting Is Not A Full-Time Job
Parents, prepare to be enraged! A new study says that parenting really isn’t a full-time job, it’s a part-time job. Getting mad yet?
The study found that on average, parents spend 28 hours and nine minutes per week taking care of their family. Eight hours and 36 minutes entertaining the kids, four hours and 48 minutes cooking, and three hours and 38 minutes doing chores. On top of that, add less than two hours each on the following things: Making beds, washing up, driving the kids to school and activities, helping with homework, running errands, and taking care of pets.
Parents, including myself, aren’t buying this. 92% of the parents surveyed said that having kids is absolutely a full-time job. I must say, not only is it a full-time job, but a fulfilling and rewarding job too!
