The upcoming Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion to talk about Moms. It is time to take help of some cold, hard statistics to gauge how mothers have been coping with childcare and career after they have been through pandemic.
The insight gained by statistics will be instrumental in telling us what moms really need this Mother’s day. Sure gifts and flowers are nice. And handmade stuff will always rank at the top of adorable list. But what if kids and partners really know what mom’s heart desires? That would make a very happy mom on Mother’s day!
Key Findings from the survey:
Moms are Tired: A whopping 93% reported occasionally feeling burned out. Even moms feeling being exhausted all the time has gone up (form 6% to 16%), and on a more frequent basis than last year (43%, up from 35%).b
Moms feel lack of support: one of the primary reasons for burnout was that moms do not feel supported enough at home. Very few (4%) have a partner who takes the primary caregiver role or even shares the responsibility equally (10%). The burden of household chores is very unequally divided.
Moms need sleep and me-time: 89% of the mothers reported getting less than the required 8 hours of sleep each night. Reasons range from staying up late to waking early, or in some cases getting up in the middle of the night with their kids.
Mothers aren’t getting nearly enough time for themselves, either: Nearly two-thirds (64%) say within the last 24 hours, they had less than one hour to themselves without work or family obligations.
All this statistics is pointing out to facts we already knew. Moms are exhausted and feeling overwhelmed with balancing their career and motherhood. And the primary reason for this is lack of support.
It takes a village to raise a child but this pandemic and social distancing has isolated many a household. More than half (56%) of mothers lack a non-family “village” they can call on for support. That’s an increase of 15 points from last year’s 41%.
In light of these findings, it is not an exaggeration to say that what moms really need for Mother’s day is some uninterrupted sleep and quality me-time so they get the much needed rejuvenation for facing the challenges of an everyday mom-life!
