According to some new research, working parents are spending more time with their children than previous generations:

"Since 1965, married fathers’ time caring for children nearly tripled to an average 7.0 hours a week from 2.5; married moms’ child-care time also rose, by 36%–to 13.9 hours from 10.2 hours."

But there aren't more hours in a day so spending more time with the kids means that working parents spend less time doing other things, such as personal grooming. Working parents are also more stressed out because they end up endlessly multi-tasking -- say, checking work email while making dinner.
