The Average Mom Spends 97 Hours a Week Parenting, and Does $100,460 of Unpaid Work a Year

A new survey of 2,000 women with kids found the average mom spends 97 hours a WEEK taking care of their children.  Which is like two-and-a-half full-time jobs . . . even though 70% of moms in the survey said they also HAVE a part-time or full-time job.

And if they got paid for all the work they do for their kids, they’d be raking in an extra $100,460 a year.  Here are four more stats from the survey . . .

1.  The ten most common jobs moms take on are:  meal planner . . . cook . . . housekeeper . . . launderer . . . teacher . . . nurse . . . life coach . . . personal assistant . . . therapist . . . and event planner.

2.  The average mom spends 46 minutes a day cooking . . . 44 minutes on laundry . . . 29 minutes on arts and crafts projects . . . and gets less than one hour of “me time.”

3.  53% of moms don’t get enough sleep, and 47% feel like they don’t have time to pursue hobbies, or hang out with friends.

4.  69% of moms in the survey said they wish they could spend even MORE time caring for their kids.
