Between keeping everyone organized, acting as your family’s scheduler and still tending to the kids during nighttime wake-ups, the mental and physical load bearing down on moms’ shoulders is huge. It might be 2022 but it’s clear from Motherly’s annual State of Motherhood survey that moms are still pulling more than their share of the household weight.

The survey revealed that 70% of millennial and Gen Z moms schedule their family’s appointments, 68% of them woke up at least once for a child the night before—whereas a whopping 58% said their partners do not wake up at all. The disparities also reach household responsibilities, where only 34% of these moms reported that they share equal responsibilities with their partner.

So, whether you’re communicating about dinner ideas, which child has sports practice or scheduling appointments, these tasks can certainly be shared amongst the whole household. With a family calendar app or a family wall calendar that everyone contributes to, it’s easier than ever to keep everyone on the same page and take the load off of mom’s shoulders to keep it all organized.
