I guess now that Father's Day is over, we can stop giving dads attention and go back to focusing on moms. After all, molding our nation’s youth into decent human beings is a difficult, not to mention stressful, task.
Here are some results from a big new survey on moms and STRESS:
The average mother feels stressed at least five times a day. 14% feel stressed at least 10 times a day.
The most stressful time of day is 11:56 A.M. Probably because it's right around lunch time, when they realize the morning is over and there's a TON of stuff still left to do.
The second-most stressful time is 8:01 A.M. And the third-most stressful time is 5:30 P.M.
The most stressful situation is going to the grocery store with kids. The rest of the top five are: Juggling housework with taking care of kids . . . the chaos of the morning . . . trying to get kids to eat . . . and preparing different meals for picky kids.
And the average mother spends three hours and 28 minutes a day doing family tasks.
