In this week's KNWA & Your Family, a new study finds most parents think caring for their child is a more exhausting job than the one they get paid for. The report is based on data collected during the 2010 American Time Use survey. Parents rated 12% of childcare activities as "very tiring," compared to 5% of work-related activities. The study also found mothers spent 31 hours a week doing unpaid childcare activities and housework -- compared to 17 hours for fathers.
