A mom’s work is equal to two and a half jobs

Changing nappies, juggling schedules, trying to maintain some semblance of personal hygiene… motherhood is no joke. Taking care of children really is a full-time job; in fact, it’s two and a half, according to research which has found that the time mothers spend on parent-related tasks is equal to a 98-hour work week.

The US survey of 2,000 mothers of children aged five to 12 reveals that the average mother will “clock-in” at 6.23 am and continue to conduct motherly duties until 8.31 pm on a normal day.

This amount of time breaks down to mothers working a 14-hour shift seven days a week, extending far beyond the hours of any ‘normal’ job.
