What is the reason for that? It has been my perception that people spend more time with their kids today than they did a generation ago, but my perception may be flawed. Is the conventional wisdom that parents are spending more time at work, at the golf course, at the gym, at civic meetings, or a combination of the above?
I assumed that those things were no more pervasive today than they were a generation ago, but I may be wrong. If true, it's unfortunate.
