parents: August 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgThe average family will endure 84 arguments over the summer holidays, it has been found.

Parental bust-ups over money, how to occupy bored youngsters and fall-outs between the kids themselves means the average family bickers twice every day.

That's 14 rows each week and 84 over the six-week week holiday. And more than half of parents admit they argue more with the family over the summer holidays than at any other time of the year.

Oddly the study also revealed there is a most common time for the fights, with 2.38pm said to be when most rows break out, with each argument lasting an average of 7.19 minutes.

But while the majority of arguments are between the children in the family, more than one in five involve mum and dad… though those can last for days.
