Parents Today Are Spending Way More Time With Their Kids Than Parents 50 Years Ago

You’d THINK families are getting less quality time together now than they used to, with longer work hours for parents and more demands on kids from school and activities. But it turns out the OPPOSITE is true.

According to a new study, parents are getting WAY more time with their kids today than parents did 50 years ago.

Back in 1965, the average mother spent 54 minutes of quality time with her kids a day. Today that’s almost DOUBLED to 104 minutes.

And in 1965, the average father spent 16 minutes of quality time with his kids. Today that’s quadrupled to 59 minutes.

The researchers say it shows that parents have really picked up the trend of prioritizing family time . . . and that dads have started embracing an equal split when it comes to taking care of the kids.
