  • I have this problem and it is multiple by the situation of chronic debilitating pain. I was not a perfect parent but I was 85% better to my other children. My last child is only getting leftovers. She is also my hardest child to raise because, she is smart, headstrong. She had so much energy, we all have a hard time keeping up.

  • So that thing my doctor called post-partum depression… was probably (a fast/early) parental burnout.

    I don’t know what to do with this info. Good thing the treatment I got seems to have worked…

  • 1) If your kid has more than one extracurricular activity, that’s too many. Find their passion and nurture it. It will feel more fulfilling to both of you and will make both of your day less stressful.

    2) While they are doing their thing, do your thing. Stop trying to fit more crap into your schedule. Just breathe. Things will get done eventually. It’s ok to be selfish for an hour or two.

    3) Our kids just want a good parent. They don’t care if we aren’t perfect.

    4) You want happy kids and your kids want a happy parent. That should be your goal. Forget about what society will say; as long as everyone at home is healthy and happy, it will be ok.


  • Modern culture places too high of an emphasis on reproduction. From my own anecdotal observations, I’d guess that under 30% of Americans are mentally qualified to actually raise children, and about that percentage have genes that might be beneficial to future generations. My own parents should not have been allowed to have kids. They’re both too self centered, typical of the baby boomer generation. And they’re genes did not produce very good results either.

  • Parenting burnout is absolutely real. Self-care is key to fighting burnout, but finding time and energy for that, especially if you’re a single parent or have a spouse with a heavy work schedule, is damn near impossible.

    I imagine there’s a lot of burnout happening right now with parents stuck at home with their kids for weeks or months straight with nowhere to go and ideas for activities dwindling. Especially with many families experiencing financial distress.

  • At the end of the day, kids’ behaviors are the leading cause of parental burnout. Parenting is easy if your kid is innately well-behaved. Some kids are just devils incarnate, whilst some are angels. ����

  • There are 7.8billion people on the planet. Your 38 billion children number can’t be correct. I think you should re-record and correct this video.

  • When your eldest is a boy and he has a three years younger sister, they reach puberty at about the same time.

    It meant war started at breakfast each day for about a year. Parenting before that time looked like a piece of cake in retrospect.

  • When it gets too much, I wait for the kids to go to bed, I head to the garage, grab the bong… and burn out until I’m not burnt out anymore.

  • Just make sure you don’t “talk it out” to one who has decided NOT to have children. We understand that parenting is hard, that’s the main reason why we don’t want to deal with such problems. Hence we don’t want to deal with your problem either…

  • REQUIRE MEN TO PARENT? REQUIRE MEN TO BIRTH CONTROL? So, Now? its hard to parent? THATS because yall are finally IN your “beloved” homes. nuttin new for those of us who been woke for years.

  • I was the 4th of 5 children, both my parents were tired of everything and barely were there to educate and take care of me and my little brother.
    Ended up relying on grandma for literally anything I needed help with and actually spent the most time there
    There’s was no one to punish me or help me at home, I pretty much had to educate myself. At the age of 4 I had to cook for myself, do chores on my own, go to parent meetings alone, always study alone. I was the only one to blame if I failed at school as there would be no one to scold me.
    On the other hand, my siblings didn’t have the same sense of responsibility, they started smoking really early (13-14), they did drugs, had bad influences and all failed at school.
    I hope that parental burn outs and depression will be taken seriously in the future, there needs help for both the parents and their children.

  • Maybe getting kids could be avoided for unstable persons through bringing up this topic in school. People still tend to romanticize the idea of being a parent. And don´t forget that our ancestors would laugh at some of you “exhausted parents”.

  • I’m not a parent but I’m a nanny. I’ve NEVER seen my bosses parent their kid. At this time of crisis-they still get to go to work and I am left with their child for 2 months straight now. No school, no activies, limited outside time, none whatsoever. The 2 of us trapped in a small apartment every single day and I am at the end of my rope! This is why I never want to have a child. help

  • i’d love to see more research on parental burnout with disabled kids (i was one). they constantly have unmet needs, not enough resources and are put on pedestals as being inspirational. my mom raised me alone, with another kid, while on welfare and going through nursing school. NO ONE should have to do that without help. parental burnout can disrupt attachment and affect the mental health of the kids, as well

  • Parents: “No, having children is the best decision you’ll ever make.”

    Corona hits, everyone in lockdown at home with their kids
    Me: “So, how’s your best decision now?”

  • How to avoid it: by not having kids. Good thing I don’t have any kids. It would be a big waste of my time, my money and my energy if I did have kids.

  • I’d be curious to see how many parents experience burnout over the course of parenthood (especially those first seven or eight years)

    Anecdotally I’ve worked in childcare for 12+ years and nearly all the parents I’ve worked with have expressed or shown signs of burnout at some point.

  • I’m the father of a 16 year old, a 13 year old and a 6 year old. I could have told these researchers about parental burnout without all the trouble of doing a study. It is real. It sucks. Therapy helps.

  • I was really negativity primed by the last micrOOoHglia video of this guy but… this was more average than the last video. Unfortunately, like with the last video and many of these assotiative studies, it’s unclear what the cause of the association is. It’s e.g. unclear whether feeling disconnected with your kid is a mere consequence of being disorganized. Or the other way round, your personality is more prone to having difficulties relating to others in general. Well, yes, there’s an association… but what exactly have we learnt here?!
    Regardless of this, I’m not faulting the speaker (unlike last neurobiology upload)

  • ……… I’ll just say, we live in a world where a license is required to drive and u cannot do so alone until 16 yet, anyone can have a baby and no one is there to help(if they have no personal social network) or ensure that the baby(who grows into a child still having hefty needs) has the required resources, dhs is a joke on the day to day hustle and bustle of “REAL LIFE” and how it realistically works and the days realisticflow of life internally. Especially in a child’s mind. DHS is simply NOT helpful and they do not function on the level of a child’s mind, in the nd the children suffer alone in the gaslighting perspective from surrounding adults that they have any and all resources they need, “just ask!!”

  • My parents didn’t even show up to my Highschool graduation…. they still Tell me how stressful it was to ignore me. Not everybody should have kids.

  • I love my daughter but I really cannot stand kids I am an absolute introvert while she is an absolute extrovert and she tires me out so freaking quickly it’s not even funny.

  • I have 3 kids and never had this “burn out” happen to me. I love my kids and love spending time with them. Is it stressful sometimes yes but that’s what being a parent is about. This burn out thing seems to be a newer millenial thing because their parents didn’t teach them anything. Call me a boomer if you want but I’m millennial generation too I just had good parents.

  • I have 3 kids, my youngest is 3. The parental burnout is real!! ( i love them more than anything, but yeah, we need breaks sometimes!)

  • Honestly I think a lot of parents experience burn out due to their social structures collapsing after having children. Most people tend to keep less connections after marriage and even less after childbirth. I feel like if they were able to keep their connections or form strong new ones with other parents, they may have an easier time with raising kids. I know my dad (single parent) sent my siblings and I off to friends houses frequently on the weekends and during the summer time just so he had time to recuperate and get things done. My friends parents would do the same and send their kids to come visit us for weeks at a time as well.

  • My older children blame the youngest, for my BURNOUT. Definitely my health is declining and is a huge part of my BURNOUT. I am young in age and should not be out of energy to take care of my children but the chronic pain keeps me exhausted. My family is paying the price for my Bad Chronic Pain and Extremely Exhausted.

  • As the world has entered global lockdown and caring for all children is now 24/7 by necessity. Don’t you think most of your suggestions are ridiculous! What MOST parents are looking for is looking for help now. Maybe you should have held this episode or reworked it. 0/10 for effort 0/10 for forethought, shame you are normally quite good.

  • My man ruined the entire episode’s finish when he said to go be distracted in a Facebook group rather than have a meaningful talk with your family.

  • Yes! Finally someone said something! Parents ( mothers usually) around me are always tired. They refused to leave their kids with a relative, refuse to hire a cleaning service and prepare all meals for the kids ( even if the kid can make a sandwich by himself). The fact is that they have been taught that the mother who enjoys her time is a bad mom. They’re basically don’t want be judged harshly by others.

  • The best way to avoid parent burnout is not being a parent at all. Do not put more human lifes to suffur in this world. Just enjoy the world when still isn’t over.

  • growing up with a burnt out parent is especially hard. it sucks being a kid and feeling like your parent doesn’t love you or want you.

  • I believe I am burnedout from my University, I am near the end of it but I don’t see me finishing it. I just have 2 more courses to go, the two of which I failed last year. My parents think I am lazy, but it is not like I don’t like studying, I am still studing a lot on my free time I am constantly doing courses and workshops. People tell me to insist on it, because I am so close to ending it but I cant’ stand being in that place anymore, it is so unpleasurable and I often feel shamed and embarrassed of being there, most teachers act as if I am stupid or try to demoralize me and I really hate the idea of graduating there.

  • It’s extremely hard being a divorce dad. Have to find time time to earn money for Child support and spend time rental support. And maintain relationship. With kids and. Life a place of your own and mom telling the kids your the worst.
    Saying a deap. Getting sent to jail not paying all money owe but Don’t have. Did you know Joe Biden brags about not allowing men struggling to pay Alimony and child support to declare bankruptcy.
    And dealing with homelessness.
    And everyone society putting in realistic goals and calling them debts so what prks every is to men and systematic oppression

  • I’m a step parent and I certain have been feeling burned out. I have no kids of my own and trying to help raise 3 girls is very tough. I’m 26 and they are 12, 10, and 7. Somedays are harder than others

  • Cool, I’ll just send her to daycare, or a relative, or hire a babysitter…. Oh wait, no, everyone is in lockdown and I’m entirely stuck with her 24/7…

  • See a Doctor you either need no more kids or a divorce or both. Loving people never get burn out about your children. People are insane and create child in a play of control. They’re Crazy don’t have anymore kids.

  • Uh huh…great suggestions unless you don’t have anyone who will take your kids for awhile and you don’t have the money to send them anywhere.

  • Took care of an expensive fake baby like 2 years ago for a high school and i burned out but he 1st time it cried, i shall never have kids. Pressed the kill switch

  • It takes a village. Being there to love and care for the kids in your life, especially when you are not the parent, probably helps out the parents a lot.

  • Good morning lost my job yesterday. Suffering from PTSD because I lost both my daughters covid 19 has life I if there’s anyone who can help me please $Ladygem1980 is my cash app anything would help me right now Thank you
