Kids Interrupt Their Parents Working from Home Five Times a Day
When the new school year started, that meant a lot of families had parents working from home and kids learning from home. And that means . . . boundary issues.
According to a new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Sittercity, the average parents say their kids interrupt them up to five times a DAY since the new school year started.
There are also four snack breaks every day . . . either for the parents or the kids . . . and at least one wifi issue every day.
But . . . deep down, parents are really appreciating the situation. The average family now eats six more meals together in a week than they used to . . . and 91% say they hope all this extra quality time continues even once this era is over.
And 58% of parents whose kids have gone back to school in person say they miss having the kids around.
