Moms (and stay-at-home dads!) work hard. But can it be quantified into hours like a traditional workweek? A new study by Welch’s did just that, and their findings are astounding: the average mother works 98 hours a week! The study of 2,000 American mothers with kids between five and 12 years old found that the average mother “clocks in” at 6:23 a.m. and “clocks out” at 8:31 p.m., for an average work day of 14 hours. Of course, there are no days off for mothers, so this includes the weekends, which means the average week comes out to nearly 100 hours.
OK, moms and mister mom’s, does that seem like the amount of hours you work in a week, or do you think it’s more?
