 Mothers Face Hundreds of Questions Every Day by Their Little Ones

A recent survey by the online retailer littlewoods shows how mothers are showered with more than two hundred questions every single day by their little kids.

Around 1000 mothers with children aged between two and ten years old were surveyed about the daily routine with their kids. It was found that every day right from breakfast at around 7.19 a.m. till night 7.59 p.m. young kids test their mom's knowledge and of course patience by asking an average of 288 queries. This means that British moms are answering more questions per hour than the Prime Minister.


Children ask more questions during meals, which averages at 11. It was also noted that 82% of the kids approach their mom first rather than their dad as nearly one fourth of the children believed that their dad is most likely to ask them to get it clarified with their mom.

Four-year-old girls were the most inquisitive posing an astonishing 390 questions per day, while nine-year-old boys felt more content with their knowledge.

82% of the mothers admitted that they are often unable to answer the questions.
