The Letidor.ru edition for parents and the SelfMam project conducted a survey among Russian mothers and found out what worried them in 2020. The results of the study are published on the website of the publication on Sunday, November 29.
It turned out that most mothers experience gigantic fatigue (22 percent) or psychologically exhausted (26 percent). The same number of respondents reported anxiety, and slightly less than 21 percent said they were in good health.
According to the survey, mothers are most worried about the health of their child during a pandemic (38 percent) and schooling (25 percent). At the same time, almost half of the study participants (49 percent) were extremely unhappy with distance learning, calling it a challenge for the family. At the same time, 10 percent of women spoke in favor of just such a format of education.
40 percent of the respondents also complained about the lack of time for personal plans, and 15 percent noted that they "improved the ability to cope with their own emotions."
The women were also asked who they turn to with their problems. 29 percent of them answered that they always cope with their emotions on their own. And 26 percent said they were looking for support from their husband.
