Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Parenting is the most difficult job you’ll ever love to do says a report put out by the government.
I always wondered where my mommy and daddy’s tax dollars went.
According to the report 62% of parents find parenting “very meaningful.”
But only 36% find time they spend at work that cool.
But … those same parents find that 12% of their time spent with their children as very tiring but only 5% of their work is very tiring.
Hmm… maybe they need to work harder.
More than one in three parents (35%) said they were very happy with their kids. (Why not 100%?)
Less than one in five said they were very happy at work. (19%).
Confucius said, “Find a job you love to do and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Maybe they need to make a job out of spending time with their kids, no?
15% of moms said raising kids made them very tired. But only 6% of dads thought so.
And the report said that dads and moms are spending about the same time playing games and sports with the kids.
But moms do the diaper changing, taxiing and homework. Hmm… now there’s a big difference.
My mommy and daddy love spending time with me.
How about your mommy and daddy?
