Parental Guilt

It’s no secret that there’s a lot of pressure put on parents these days, and while the reality may be that no parent is perfect, it seems a lot of them feel bad about if they aren’t. 

A new survey finds that the average American parent feels 23 pangs of guilt every single week because of decisions they didn’t think were good enough. What’s more, 75% of parents admit feeling pressure from friends, family and social media to be “perfect,” while 25% have had other parents question their decisions. And social media is playing a big role in that too, with 31% of Millennial parents saying they regularly compete with other parents via social media.

As for parents’ top sources of guilt, they include:

  1. Losing my temper
  2. Not playing enough with my children
  3. Not being home enough
  4. Letting my children have too much screen time
  5. When I don't feel like I'm being a good role model
  6. Not being able to take my children on more vacations or outings
  7. When I don't have time to make home-cooked meals
  8. Not reading enough to and with my children
  9. Letting my kids eat junk food
  10. Working too much
