It also emerged the av­er­age par­ent found them­selves feel­ing stressed six times a day and be­lieved the age of ive Is when CHIL­DREN peak AND be­come their most de­mand­ing. The re­search was con­ducted by Bpme, a new app which al­lows cus­tomers to pay for their fuel with­out leav­ing their car, help­ing re­duce the stresses and strains of time­pressed par­ents.

Daniel Slater, dig­i­tal ex­e­cu­tion man­ager for BP said: “With chil­dren in tow, the sim­plest of tasks can seem mon­u­men­tal at times — even THE sim­ple JOB of illing up the car with fuel takes twice as long when you have to ne­go­ti­ate car seats and straps to get the en­tire fam­ily out of the ve­hi­cle to pay.”
