Australian mothers better at saying “no”

Australian mums are better at saying no to their children while doing their grocery shopping than mums from the US and Austria, according to a University of South Australia study.

The study showed that Australian mothers gave in to the demands of their children 26% of the time, while American mothers gave in 97% of the time, and Austrian mothers gave in 52% of the time.

The study found that Australian children ask for something in the supermarket approximately once every three minutes.
