I knew my brain was drained at the end of a day of parenting two children for plenty of reasons, but I never considered just how much time and energy I put into answering their questions. Oh, I realized it was a lot, but I'd never considered the actual number of questions being fired at me.
A recent study did, however, and the findings are pretty astonishing. According to news.com.au, a study from online retailer Littlewoods surveyed 1,000 mothers with kids between 2-10. They found that moms get asked about 228 questions a day -- and that's just from one child. Four-year-old girls ask the most questions -- 390 per day, which amounts to more than one every minute they're awake!
Lucky me, I happen to have a 4-year-old girl, and while that number seemed high at first read, when I actually started thinking about, I started to wonder if it's really high enough.
