Studies show that working mothers multitask and stress more than fathers, according to the American Sociological Review.
The study looked at 368 mothers and 241 fathers took part in the study, reported NPR.
"When the watch goes off, they fill out a form that says what are you doing," co-author of the study Barbara Schneider told NPR. "But not just what are you doing, but what else are you doing. And how do you feel about what you're doing. Would you rather be doing something else."
Mothers spent 10.5 more hours than fathers each week multitasking, reported NPR.
However, multitasking for fathers were more relieved multitasking than mothers. Mothers dubbed the hours they went home as the "arsenic hours," reported NPR.
