Women turn to their mums for comfort

For eight out of ten women say their mum is the person they turn to when they are dealing with relationship issues, friendship bust-ups and work stresses, according to a study released yesterday.

For eight out of ten women say their mum is the person they turn to when they are dealing with relationship issues, friendship bust-ups and work stresses, according to a study released yesterday.
 
Researchers found the majority of females would always turn to their mother in a moral dilemma and would be ‘completely lost’ without their help and support.
 
They are more likely to turn to their dads for practical help.

However, nearly half of those polled said having a solid relationship with both parents is the key to a having a happy, well-rounded life.
 
Sally Wainwright concept manager for the Fayre and Square pub restaurant chain which carried out the research, said: ”It’s evident that millions of women whether they are in their late teens or in their forties would be lost without the support and backing of their mum.
 
”Mums seem to be the glue that holds the family together and it’s only natural that many girls feel closer and more emotional with their mother.
 
”Being able to rely on your parents whatever age you are is a real advantage in life and a strong relationship with them should be treasured.”
 
The study of 2,000 women aged between 18-40 who still have both parents alive, quizzed them on who they felt closer to. 
 
Nine in ten said they would happily have a ‘good cry’ with mum, but just 15 per cent of girls would have an emotional heart to heart with their Dad.
 
Most women speak to their mum every day and spend an average of twenty minutes chatting on the phone.
 
A quarter of women said they regularly treat their mother to lunches and days out.
 
Seven in ten of the females polled said as a child they always turned to their mum and one in five said their mother now bears the brunt of all their problems.
 
Dads are only involved when their daughters are in need of DIY help or need money. 
 
Only a third said they spoke to their dad every single day and a massive 84 per cent said they never take their dad out. 
 
The average amount women splash out on their mum on Mother’s Day is £18.57 – compared to £16.10 spent on Father’s Day.
