THE PRESSURE FOR PERFECTION


A British website had some interesting results from a survey of mothers.


The survey showed that 91% of mothers constantly feel under the spotlight because of pressure to be the perfect mom.

They blame that pressure on the media, the Government, schools and education campaigns.


But despite feeling pressure to be perfect, 80% said they were "pretty" or "very" confident that they were doing a good job.


Of the 514 mothers who took the survey, more than half (54%) said they spend more quality time with their children than they themselves got in childhood.
