London, August 22 (ANI): Modern mothers don't know how to do simple household tasks like home baking, making pastry and sewing buttons, because they are too busy to learn them, a study has revealed.
According to the survey of 1,000 mothers under 35, nine out of 10 can't starch a shirt, while more than half struggle to sew nametags in children's clothes.
Three-quarters couldn't make gravy from scratch, while half didn't know how to rustle up a Victoria sponge, the Daily Express reported.
"It's such a shame that younger mums today find themselves too busy to enjoy time spent baking with their children and other traditional tasks," said Sue Flowers, brand manager of the Neff oven company, which commissioned the study. (ANI)
