If parenting has become a total grind, you’re not alone. With the pandemic throwing a wrench into just about any kind of school or family activity, parents everywhere are struggling to bounce back. And a new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Sittercity highlighted the common struggles that families are facing.
The survey collected 2,000 responses from American parents of school-aged children. The results? 69 percent of parents said they’re overwhelmed with the constant routine changes of the past year. Over half (51%) said they don’t feel prepared for the upcoming school year. What’s more, 60 percent reported that the mental load of parenting is overwhelming.
