In the words of the UK's Office for National Statistics:
A TYPICAL WORKING MOM SPENDS JUST 19 MINUTESS A DAY LOOKING AFTER THEIR CHILDREN.
In a Time Use Survey that studied about 4,950 people, tracking how much time each person allots to individual activities throughout the day. The top 3 activities were sleeping, working and watching television. Activities at the bottom of the lists were reading with 10 to 24 minutes per day and spending time with children with just 19 minutes per day.
This survey comes at a time when there are more working moms than ever. The survey results show that over 12 million moms work outside the house today compared to approximately 8 million in 1970.
In another report by Prima Magazine, (a leading british women magazine read by over a million women) women were asked "In an ideal world, what would you like to be?" 26 percent said they wanted to be a "housewife and mother". The most popular response, given by 50 percent, was to be a "mum who works part-time" just 6 percent of the women wanted to work full-time.
