Is Parenting a Full Time Job?
According to a new study, being a parent is not a full-time job. The study found that the average parent only spends 28 hours and nine minutes a week taking care of their family, which makes it a part time job. Here's the breakdown
Eight hours and 36 minutes entertaining the kids.
Four hours and 48 minutes cooking.
Three hours and 38 minutes doing chores.
And 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.
Not surprisingly, 92% of parents disagree, and say being a parent IS a full-time job.
