Hey Mom and Dad, you have a whopping 32 minutes a day to yourselves!  A study of 2,000 moms and dads found that the typical parent has just over 30 minutes to themselves every day once work and parenting duties are completed for the day. And, with free time hard to come by, parents said they take to hiding from their children four times a week to carve out space. The survey found free time is non-existent for full-time working parents as they each spend an average 18 hours a week directly taking care of their kids every week. 24% of parents spend more than 30 hours every week directly taking care of their kids in addition to other responsibilities. That busy schedule appears to affect your diet with 88% of parents admitting to being too busy to cook and 96% reported that not having enough time to cook results in them indulging in less healthy food. In fact, parents are so busy that they actually skip 227 proper meals every year and takeout is a popular option when time is running thin and dinnertime is right around the corner. Parents spend an average of $4,524 every year on takeout as a direct result of being too busy to cook.
