Women Spill Their ‘Mom Secrets.’

When the Today Show and Parenting.com [1] asked 26,000 mothers to spill about their “secrets and confessions,” the results [2] were the stuff of daytime TV talk shows.


“Nearly one in five moms admits medicating their child to get through a special event like a plane flight; one in 12 does it just to get some peace and quiet on a regular night,” Today reported. “Half have knowingly sent a sick kid to daycare or school, 85 percent use their kids to get out of social obligations . . . [and] nearly one in three uses work as an excuse to avoid taking care of the kids.” (August 2011)
