Staying Home With Your Kids Is Harder Than Going to Work, Says a New Survey
Being a stay-at-home parent isn't easy, and a recent survey conducted by Aveeno Baby found it might even be harder than holding down a full-time job. Researchers asked 1,500 moms and dads in the UK, and 31 percent of parents said that staying home with their kids is harder than going to work every day.
Aveeno Baby Skin Expert Rebecca Bennett explained that the poll was done in the hopes of reassuring new moms and dads that caring for a child isn't always easy.
"Becoming a parent is an amazing experience, but we understand that entering this new chapter of life can also bring with it a great deal of stress and worry, so we wanted to discover more about what new parents experience in the first few years, what they wish they had known, and how best we can support them," said Rebecca.
