Parenting begins with the psychological well-being of the mother. A stressed, over-fatigued mother can offer little to her child. There are certain household chores that drain women's energy the most, according to Huffpost website.

Children's clothing

Maintaining your child's wardrobe and constantly updating it is a big challenge.

As a child grows quickly, you have to buy new clothes and put away, donate or sell old ones that no longer fit. This is the biggest invisible waste of time.

Also, you need to make sure your clothes are seasonally appropriate.

Meal planning

Often the hardest part for women is planning what their family will eat each day. And that means not only coming up with meal ideas, but also finding balanced, nutritious, and tasty options that all the kids will enjoy.

It's also important to note that if children don't enjoy their meals, this time will be a real struggle.

In addition, it takes time to carefully plan meals and make a shopping list of the products you will use.

It's important to ensure that your child's diet includes an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables every day.

Replacing and replenishing items

At first glance, this may seem like an easy task, but constantly keeping track of what items need to be replaced or replenished, such as diapers, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, pet food, and so on, requires a lot of time and effort.

Managing the school schedule

School assignments involve much more time and effort than it seems at first glance.

One example is going through all school letters and documents and addressing them.

It's also necessary to ensure that the child completes the tasks assigned by the school.

Attending birthday parties

Planning a birthday party for a child can be a challenge, but it happens once a year. However, you may also be a guest at other children's parties several times a month.

It's important to consider each child's preferences and come up with appropriate gifts for each birthday.

Ironing clothes after laundry

You don't have to iron all baby onesies and diapers after washing. Ironing usually takes a lot of time and energy from new mothers, but sometimes it is not necessary.
