New Parents Fight 187 Times The Year After Their First Child Is Born
Don't worry guys, it's not just you and your wife. According to a new survey in the Daily Mail, the average couple fights 187 times in the year following the birth of their first child. Good news, most are minor, like who has to change the dirty diaper.
The new parents actually fight 42% more than they did before the bouncing baby arrived. One third of the fights were about diaper duty. 24% were about who's turn it was to feed junior in the middle of the night.
22% of the parents in the study said they felt personally neglected by the other parent following the birth, and 40% said it was the biggest learning experience of their life.
And what word did new parents use to describe the first year of their amazing gift? Magical? Loving? Amazing? -- Nope; 'TIRING' was the number-one answer.
