Family Priorities

clockAccording to a recent survey by Frigidaire, moms get less than one full day of free time each month. No surprise.

What gives pause is the effect that so much housework and childcare has on the quality of actual human relationships–with both kids and partner:

  • Only 17% of moms said they spend their free time with their partners
  • Moms spend 17 hours each month taking care of pets and only 3 hours more each month talking with their partners
  • Moms would rather do “nothing” over “getting steamy” with their partners
  • Moms average 36 hours a month getting their kids ready for school or bath time, but they spend only 29 hours a month on quality time with their kids

What matters most? Family, or family management?
