You’ll Have More Than 2,000 Arguments With Your Children a Year
Most parents will say having kids was the best thing they've ever done, but only in the middle of yelling at them to sit down, shut up, and finish their dinner.
A new survey found the average parent has six separate arguments with their kids each day. Which works out to 42 arguments a week, 182 a month, and 2,184 a year.
The saddest stat is you only win about half of those arguments. Most parents said they end up compromising a lot, just to keep the peace. Here are the ten most common things we argue with our kids about:
- Not cleaning their plate.
- Not cleaning their bedroom.
- Only wanting junk food.
- Complaining that they're full after they've barely touched their food.
- Fighting with their siblings.
- Eating junk food before a meal.
- Trying to delay their bedtime.
- Using their phones and computers too much.
- Not brushing their teeth.
