OSU Study: Moms get shit done while dads relax

A new study from the Ohio State University found that dads are more than twice as lazy as moms on days off.

NBC4i reports that the study revealed that three months after their first child, men are more likely to kick back when they’re not working while women spend their time tending to the baby and the household.

It also probably comes as no surprise that when dads are taking charge with the kiddos, moms are usually right there helping them out.


On the weekends, men relaxed 46 percent of the time while their partner tended to the child. Women only relaxed 16 percent when their partners were on duty.

As far as housework, fathers relaxed 35 percent compared to only 19 percent by women.

For shame, dads, for shame.
