(STUDY FINDS) — From mischievous behavior to flu outbreaks to bad grades in school, do you find yourself constantly worrying about your kids? If so, you’re far from alone. A new survey finds that parents spend a whopping 37 hours a week stressing over their children.
Broken down by the day, that means moms and dads burn five hours and 18 minutes daily feeling worried. The survey, commissioned by Lice Clinics of America, asked 2,000 parents about the things that worry them the most, along with how frequently they find themselves agonizing over their kids.
With so much worrying, it’s no surprise that 54 percent of parents think parenting is harder than they’d expected before having kids.
