Mums are having to juggle up to 12 different jobs in their daily lives.
A study by Tesco Mobile has discovered 64 per cent of mothers combine full or part-time jobs with various other roles in the home.
Some 82 per cent clean the house, 76 per cent do all of the cooking and 59 per cent have to look after the finances.
Because of the range of tasks they have to cover, they have been dubbed 'Smartmums' by Tesco Mobile.
Dr Katherine Rake, Chief Executive of the Family and Parenting Institute, said: "Mums today not only work longer hours both at work and within the home, but are also the lynchpin of family life and the hub for family communication."
She added parents are under a lot of pressure and so they should be praised for their multi-tasking abilities.
Indeed, 94 per cent of those questioned feel like chores are never ending, while 76 per cent think they need help to manage the household.
