Parents are tired

This just in, from the CDC: many adults wake up not feeling well-rested, especially those with children, and especially-especially those with young children. Here’s the graph:
See? Of adults surveyed, aged 18-64, about 35% said that they often wake up unrested. That increases to about 40% if they’ve got school-aged children, and 50% if they have children in the house less than 3. Women in every category feel less well-rested than men.
Glad that’s settled.
