Parents, take our stress survey: Do you feel burnt out?

Hey, parents!

Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed or burnt out at times? Sometimes it feels like that's part of the package when it comes to having kids. But should it be?

We don't have all the answers, but we want to hear from you. Take our survey to let us know how you're REALLY feeling.

We wish we could wave a magic wand and take away your stress... or give us all a two-week beach vacation! Sorry we can't do that (we'd save you a beach chair, honest), but at the very least we can assure you that we're all in this together. Visit the TODAY Parenting Team to read and contribute your own stories about feeling stretched too thin, and how to get happy.

Turn the TV off when you can and turn the conversation on where possible. And remember; loving them is easy, it’s rearing them that’s hard but it does get easier with practise.

To the mom who feels invisible: You are valued more than you know
