“You’d lose your head if it wasn’t screwed on”, says every Irish Mammy! - 96% of parents report that children lose at least one school item during the school year

96% of parents report that children lose at least one school item during the school year according to research from My Nametags

Back to School time is just around the corner and with just a few more weeks to go My Nametags (www.mynametags.ie) conducted a survey with Irish Mums and Dads to find out their thoughts ahead of this busy time of year.

The research*, commissioned by My Nametags, found that 96% of Irish parents report that their child / children lose a school item at some stage during the school year. The research also found that parents in Leinster reported that stationary was the most likely items lost (with over 50%).  30% of parents in Leinster surveyed claim that the average amount for the items lost each school year was over €91!

Interestingly, the research also found that the age of the child played a role on what items were most likely to be lost; younger children in the 6 – 10 age bracket were most likely to lose stationary (57%) while older children in the 13 – 17 age bracket were more likely to lose their calculator (36%).
