Drivetime = Stresstime

The most stressful time of the day for modern mothers is exactly 5.55pm, new research shows.

That is the point when millions of mothers are usually rushing around trying to cook dinner in time to ferry the kids to their after-school clubs.

Bath time - or 7.15pm - was the second most stressful point in a mum's day, with the kids' bedtime at 8.45pm coming third.

The morning school run, at around 8.20am, was fourth.

What would you say was your most stressful part of the day, and why?
