育兒壓力倍增,27%的父母恐將因疫情辭職

想要在疫情期間平衡好無休止的育兒與工作壓力,比預想得更加困難。

據育兒福利平臺Cleo的一項最新調查顯示,自4月以來,美國在職父母的境況變得更加糟糕。

新冠疫情初期,只有6%的受訪者表示,迫于疫情危機中的育兒壓力,他們計劃離職。但在本周二公布的第二次調查結果中,發現如今有27%的受訪者計劃離職。

育兒福利平臺Cleo已經成立四年,專為幼兒家長提供哺乳咨詢和心理健康支持等服務。今年6月,該公司對孩子處于4個月至5歲年齡段的136名家長進行了調查。這些家長來自科技、金融、食品飲料等多個行業,不僅有高薪白領,還包括送貨司機和銀行出納員。

“我并不意外,但我仍然感到震驚。”Cleo的首席執行官薩拉簡?薩凱蒂在談到這一發現時表示。

家長們想要在新冠疫情期間平衡好無休止的育兒與工作壓力,比預想得更加困難。調查發現,計劃在休完育兒假后重返工作崗位的父母比例在過去三個月保持不變,但按時返回工作崗位的實際比例卻有所下降;4月有83%的父母如期返回工作崗位,而現在只有72%。

現在托兒服務的供應量甚至要少于4月美國采取封閉措施時的數量。只有大約35%的家庭表示,上個月享受過某種形式的托兒服務,而這一比例在兩個月前是50%。

這些數字不斷惡化的原因之一可能是在疫情初期,家長們所期望的幫助并沒有實現。今年4月,有53%的受訪者表示,他們計劃在疫情期間和家人離得更近一些,但在6月的調查中,只有28%的受訪者表示,他們現在得到了來自家庭的育兒援助。

“在新冠疫情發生以前,我們是樂觀、有生命力和創造力的父母,但我們沒能實現這些改變。” 薩凱蒂說道。

這些現實對心理健康有著重大影響,尤其對女性而言。根據6月的調查,女性認為心理健康是一項挑戰的可能性是男性的2.5倍。(財富中文網)

A new survey by parenting benefits platform Cleo comes to a stark conclusion: Things have gotten much worse for working parents since April.

At that early stage of the coronavirus pandemic, only 6% of people who responded to the startup's survey said they planned to leave the workforce because of the pressures of parenting amid the coronavirus crisis. But in a second iteration of that survey published Tuesday, a full 27% of respondents said they now planned to leave work.

Cleo, a four-year-old employee benefits platform that provides services like lactation consulting and mental-health support to parents of young children, in June surveyed 136 parents of children between the ages of 4 months and 5 years old across 11 of its corporate clients. The companies surveyed spanned the tech, finance, and food and beverage industries—and included not just well-paid white-collar workers, but also delivery drivers and bank tellers.

"I'm not surprised, but I'm still horrified," Cleo CEO Sarahjane Sacchetti says of the findings.

Balancing never-ending childcare with the pressures of work through the coronavirus pandemic has turned out to be harder than parents expected. The surveys also found that the percentage of new parents who plan to return to work after parental leave has remained consistent over the past three months—but the share who actually go back on time has declined; 83% returned to work when they expected to in April, compared to only 72% now.

Childcare is in even shorter supply now than it was as the country shut down in April. Only about 35% of families reported they had some form of childcare last month, compared to 50% two months earlier.

One of the reason for these worsening numbers may be that help parents expected in the early days of the crisis has not materialized. In April, 53% of respondents said they planned to move closer to family or have family move closer to them during the pandemic; in the June survey, just 28% of respondents said they now have childcare assistance from family.

"Working parents—before COVID hit, we were optimistic, resilient, and creative," says Sacchetti. "But parents have not been able to materialize those changes."

And these realities have a significant impact on mental health, especially for women. Women are two-and-a-half times more likely than men, according to the June survey, to say mental wellness is a challenge right now.
