Whether it’s going to friends for relationship advice, dad when moving house, and mom for parenting tips, it appears- we’re not afraid to ask for help!
A study found that on average, we’ve asked 31 people for help so far in our lifetime. Over the course of a standard week, they ask for help or advice twice – a total of 104 times a year.
Who are we asking for advice?
- We’re asking mom for health advice
- We’re asking dad for financial advice
- We’re asking friends for relationship advice
- We’re asking our partner for technology and career advice
The study also found 35 percent said their mom is the most helpful compared to just 13 percent who chose dad. Almost a quarter even admitted their mom will always be their ‘go-to’ in life no matter how old they are.
If mom isn’t around to save the day…52% of people will turn to Google for answers, while 43% of people will watch a YouTube video for answers.
