The team quizzed more than 500 teenagers and their parents to know whether they have ever experienced burnt-out.

They found that children of parents who feel burnt-out at offices, begin to worry that they are not keeping up with their classmates, become cynical about the value of education and exams and may even start to experience the exhaustion that accompanies burn-out.
