Money Stress for Parents
Many people say money is their greatest source of stress. That was the finding of a survey of more than 3,000 U.S. adults.1
Sixty-four percent of adults say money causes them to feel somewhat or very stressed. The stress is even higher for parents with children under age 18:
- Among parents, 77 percent say they feel this way.
- In addition, 58 percent of parents say paying for basics causes them to feel somewhat or very stressed.
