Husband Versus Children, Who Creates More Stress For Mums

I am not sure if you agree or disagree, but a recent study has shown that husbands stress wives out more than kids.

This study was conducted byTODAY and it surveyed many moms (over in America) and it found that almost half of all moms felt strongly about this.

46% of the 7,000 mothers surveyed found that husbands were a large source of stress (and not children).

One person said, quote, “A 7-year-old is going to be a 7-year-old. But a 35-year-old acting like a 7-year-old is more stressful, because they should know better.”

When it comes to husbands, the average mom rated her stress level an 8.5 out of 10, saying that fathers are more like big kids than equal partners, and that the inability to see eye-to-eye with ones partner can lead to more stress.

Other issues included:

  • Day-to-day work of parenting, which moms say falls largely on them, seems that mothers worry about not having enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done.
  • Three-quarters of moms with partners say they do most of the parenting and household duties.
  • One in five moms says not having enough help from their spouse is a major source of daily stress.

On the flip side, there was a study conducted back in 2012 with Dads.

It discovered that fathers felt like they were doing more than ever with the kids but didn't get any credit.

Most men just want a little verbal acknowledgement, a “good job” now and then from their spouse.
