Responsibility.org: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party
The holidays are upon us and stress levels might be high as we try to host the perfect party, buy the perfect gifts, set out the perfect holiday décor, and send the perfect holiday cards. This can be a stressful time for many.
Responsibility.org conducted a national survey on how Americans manage the stress of the holidays and some of the results may, or may not surprise you. Here's a glimpse at the difference between how moms vs. dads manage the holiday stress:
- Overall, American parents report higher levels of stress than adult Americans (38% vs. 25%) during the holiday season.
- The survey results reported no difference in the level of stress between moms and dads, what differed is the ways moms and dads managed the stress.
How do moms vs. dads manage holiday stress?
- One-third of moms reported being more stressed by family, especially cooking and planning meals vs. 13% of dads.
- An overwhelming 50% of moms reported coping with holiday stress by focusing on what's important.
- Over 25% of dads reported managing stress with alcohol.
- 20% of dads reported managing stress by delegating to a spouse/significant other.
- Over 60% of moms cited financial worries vs. 51% of dads but overall parents are more stressed about finances and money than those without kids.
