School Morning Stress

Take some sluggish, slow-moving kids, mix with one part traffic congestion and one part pressure to get to work and what do you have? A recipe for stressed out parents!


The harried dash to drop children off at school on time and make it into the office makes British moms and dads a little edgy, The Daily Mail reported [1].


“According to a recent study, 77 percent of parents who drive their kids to school find both the morning and afternoon school run more stressful than work or grocery shopping,” the paper said. “It found a staggering 54 percent of people are more likely to use their horn or swear at other drivers during the school run than at any other time on the road as stress levels are so heightened.”


Then there’s this: “Eighty percent of parents admit to losing their temper with their young ones on the drive to school on a daily basis - and 42 percent even admit to feeling sick when thinking about the prospect of the dreaded drive.”


What do you think? On a scale of 1 to 10, what's your average school morning stress level?
