Who Does More Around the House — You or Your Partner? [POLL]
Cooking, cleaning, tending to the kids -- keeping a household running smoothly can be a full-time job.
According to a new Pew study of two-parent households, 46% now have parents where each works full-time. That's a sharp jump from the 31% 45 years ago. Twenty-six percent of these homes have fathers who work full-time with moms who don't, a 20% drop from 1970.
With those figures looming in the background, 54% of parents in two-parent households claim the mother does more when it comes to managing the children's schedules and activities, while 47% say mothers take care of the kids when they're sick (47% also say fathers do more).
Interestingly, 59% say fathers do more when it comes to household chores, 61% say dads do more punishing of kids and 64% say fathers play more with the children.
Is this survey on the money or is it nothing but a bunch of hullabaloo? You tell us.
