Both working mums and stay-at-home mums feel stressed and resentful that they do most of the domestic work, according to a US survey.
The survey of 1,200 mothers by thebump.com and Forbes Woman found that 92 per cent of working mums said they felt stressed balancing work and home life. Some 89 per cent of stay-at-home mums said they felt overwhelmed by their responsibilities and that their partners did not pull their weight at home.
Around 85 per cent said they didn’t get a break when their partner got home and half said they never got a break from parenting responsibilities, although 96 per cent said their partners got time off. A third felt their partner could do more around the house. Some said they felt like they were doing the parenting on their own despite having a partner.
