The Average Mother Now Looks After Six Different Family Members, One Pet, and Holds Down a Job
This is one of those studies you usually see around Mother's Day, but we're glad it didn't . . . because it might've gotten lost in the shuffle. By coming out over a month late, it get's our full attention . . .
A new study found the average mom is now looking after more people than EVER. The average mother looks after SIX different family members, one pet . . . AND holds down a job.
The most common people moms look after are: Kids, husband, parents, their husband's parents, other relatives, grandchildren, grandparents, stepchildren, and their husband's grandparents.
The top things they do for the people they're taking care of are: Cooking, laundry, housework, shopping, errands, taking them to doctor's appointments, taking them to school, cleaning, taking them to activities, and dressing them.
The average mother spends four-and-a-half hours actively caring for others . . . and less than two hours to themselves. (Daily Mail)
