Just what is a “parenting break” and how many is enough?
Sometimes you feel like you could use more breaks from your kids, right? You’re not the only one. Only 14% of parents say they get enough “parenting breaks” during the day, according to new research. And they’re getting creative so they can take one. Parents admit to hiding in the bathroom or pretending to be asleep in order to sneak in a break. The average parent says they need three “days off” from parenting a week. But more than half have parents or grandparents that “save the day” by taking over at times.
