Mealtime is stressful!
There’s new research that suggests that parents don’t always have it together! And usually, mealtime is to blame!
Families are most likely to eat dinner together on a Wednesday, which is also the same day parents feel the least in control of their home life!
A new survey asked parents to describe the numerous challenges they face in managing their household.
The survey found that parents seem most likely to be “on top of everything” on a Monday! But by Thursday, parents are struggling to stay afloat.
The study also found that January, February and March are the most challenging months for their families in a given year!
Parents admit that they schedule their lives around their kid’s schedules rather than their own.
Meal time appears to be the biggest struggle for parents. Whether it’s planning a meal or just trying to sit down together, it’s no wonder parents admit to having a lack of energy to get up and plan proper meals.
