This one from the Daily Mail has the results of a new survey of parents and it turns out being a Dad is painful.
The British survey shows the average father suffers 22 injuries a year playing with the kids, eight of those while playing with the little ones.
He also bashes his shin three times on something the kids have left lying around the house and steps on a toy or plug four times-a-year on average.
The research, commissioned by new family-focused insurance brand There, found 40% of fathers felt walking across a toy covered floor was the most dangerous aspect of being a parent.
While those with cats or dogs can expect to trip over or have the family pet get under their feet a further four times per year.
Fathers stumble on an item of clothing or other belonging that’s been left out four times a year, while the dreaded prospect of an accidental hit to the crotch injures men twice a year.
The study also found a fifth of fathers have had to take time off work because of an injury after an activity with the family.
In these instances, the average time dad was off work was for 10 days, most likely due to an injury to the back.
Just under a third have been head-butted by their young child while a quarter said play-fighting with the kids regularly saw them tweak something.
Other areas of parenting where men have had a brush with injury were when having to play goalie kicking a ball around with the kids or when climbing trees with them.
And a young at heart one in five have picked up an injury doing something which they confessed ‘I should know better than to attempt at my age’.
