The Daily Mail reports a new survey done by The Baby Website, who asked 3,000 parents to list roles they thought were theirs or their partners.

Interesting that it follows typical stereotypes, but it also shows that Dads are pretty involved in lots of aspects of their kids’ lives.

…Spokesman Nigel Crawford said: ‘The poll unveiled a clear difference in parenting responsibilities. While dads definitely pull their weight, the jobs they are assigned to tend to be more fun and less dirty work.

But he added: ‘One thing which is apparent is that mums and dads wholeheartedly embrace their assigned jobs.

‘Interestingly men and women are completely agreed that mums get the roughest deal, but this is probably because she spends the most time with the children day to day.

‘Either way mums are happy with their lot – and seven in ten think there is a good balance between parenting responsibilities.’

‘Dads …spend much of their time being really hands on with the kids – fixing toys and bikes, thinking up new games and teaching them to ride their bikes.’
