Today’s Mums Run Out of Time to Learn Domestic Chores

An alarming count of mothers lack household skills like baking, knitting and sewing and sadly are dying out since they are too busy to learn them, reveals a new study.

Millions of mothers struggle with making pastry, jam or stitching on a button, according to a survey for oven firm Neff, which interviewed 1,000 mothers aged under 35 and 1,000 over 45, the Daily Express reported.


The survey revealed that nine out of 10 younger mothers do not know how to starch a shirt, while more than half struggle to sew name tags.

Less than a third could make pastry, less than half could sew, and less than one quarter knew how to knit.

On the other hand, more than a third of mothers over 45 could sew a fancy dress costume while 43 per cent knew how to make jam.
