PARENTS row with their kids an average six times a day, a study found.
Each argument lasts around eight minutes with the most common flashpoint being children not eating their food.
Messy bedrooms, kids refusing healthy snacks and siblings fighting with each other also top the list.
In total, mums and dads clash with their children for 48 minutes every day, 5.6 hours a week or 12 full days a year. It works out at 42 clashes every week and 2,184 a year.
Parents win 40 per cent of the arguments, the poll of 2,000 with kids aged two to 12 found. But youngsters get their own way six times out of ten.
Other frequent rows include children barely touching their food, scoffing sweets before a meal, and trying to delay bedtime or doing their homework.
Children not brushing their teeth or wanting to go online for longer also causes fights.
Mums and dads get round the endless arguing with reward charts, extra screen time for TV or iPads or pocket money increases.
A spokesperson for Capri-Sun juice, which carried out the study, said: “Many parents believe reaching a compromise is the best way to keep everyone happy. Mums and dads have the tricky task.”
