At the risk of stating the obvious - being a parent is hard work.

Between cooking balanced meals, ensuring the children have all the support they need, trying to keep their uniforms clean and keeping the peace between siblings it's pretty much a full time job.

However, they are not the only things that stress out moms because according to a new survey, carried out by Today.com, 46% of mothers think their husbands are a bigger pain in their backside than their kids.

The survey asked 7,000 mothers to rate their stress out of 10 - and the average answer was 8.5.

Many of the women surveyed felt they never had time to themselves even though their husbands did.

They also reported that even though they work the same number of hours as their husbands, most of the housework and scheduling is Mom's responsibility.

Most of the respondents said that it's not necessarily their husbands fault but simply that marriage is hard work and when paired with the stress if raising children it can sometimes be overwhelming.
