A study of 2,000 parents examined how they cope with the school summer break and found it takes less than two weeks for moms and dads to feel the stress takes toll.
The pressure to entertain is great. More than half of parents (58%) find themselves pressured to plan out what their kids will do for the entirety of their summer.
And planning ahead can be daunting, which can explain why 75 percent of parents feel ready for their kids to go back to school at the end of the summer.
The study, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Groupon, looked into the parental decisions associated with summer planning for their children and found that three in five parents worry that their summer plans won’t live up to their kids’ expectations. (Via Bro Bible)
