Being A Parent NOT a Full-Time Job, Says Research! Parents Say, “Really?”
A new study shows that working mom’s spend an added 28 hours a week looking after their children, a statistic that many will take issue with….
The study took into account a 37½ hour work week plus an additional 5 or so hours taking care of dinner and errands plus tending kids. It also allows for extra time for moms on weekends when dad, supposedly, has more time to help with these things.
Not sure what you feel about this but it seems a little skewed to me. I remember parenting taking up all the time left after work until bed time, which was usually at least eight hours a day. That was for me at the end of the day. For my wife, who worked opposite my work schedule, she had eight hours before work.
Do you think this is right on, way off, close or what? Let’s hear from you!
