Survey shows average parent gets just 17 minutes of relaxation a day while vacationing with kids

If you’ve ever needed a vacation after a family vacation, you’re not alone. A new survey shows the average American parent gets just 17 minutes of relaxation per day on a family vacation.

One in five get 15 minutes or less, according to the poll of 2,000 people that was sponsored by Duracell.

In fact, one in 10 parents get less than five minutes to unwind while they’re supposedly getting R&R.

But it’s apparently worth the stress. The non-scientific poll also revealed that 71% of family vacationers listed taking family photos as their favorite away activity. By comparison, 66% said going out to eat was essential to a family vacation, and 51% said sightseeing was their top priority.
