Instead of relying on their support with family life, most of the moms today really feel like they are left to parent their partners. Left to play correctional officer, special events coordinator, maid, nurse, teacher, chauffeur, and chef, most of the women feel like they are always running out of steam.
It Is Not The Kids…It Is Hubby
Sadly, but true, the stress levels of the women is additionally increased by their husbands. The latest study that was made by Today which included 7,000 women, has shown that 46% of the moms say that their partners are actually causing more stress than their kids, and the average mom rates her stress level an 8,5 out of 10. Researchers summarized:
- The major source of daily stress is not having help from the partners where 1 in every 5 women experiences this issue.
- The major duties and parenting are done by moms – 1 every 4 moms.
- Most of the women experience stress because they do not have enough time to do everything that needs to be done.
Unfortunately, when women lose their partners, they become healthier, but when husbands lose their partners, their health deteriorates. Women are far more better at coping with depression and stress.
