This week Ed and Drew talk with Rachel Minkin, a research associate at the PEW Research Centre. PEW Research Centre is a fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping the world.  Rachel’s work included the recently published report: Parenting in America Today, which was created from a study conducted to better understand how American parents approach parenting.

In the conversation we explore the highlights of the research and talk about what it could mean for parents. We also learn more about PEW research and how the data is collected. 

The main findings of the survey offer validation for what parents are currently experiencing, but also breakdown unique differences in four key areas:

  • Overall parenting experience
  • Race, ethnicity and parenting
  • Gender differences in parenting
  • Income and parenting

If you’re curious to learn what other parents feel, and if you’re not alone in your experieince, this may be just what you need to hear.
