Most parents believe that they are working too much and spending too much time away from their family, but a recent study suggests that may not be the case. According to research on some 7,000 Danes conducted by the Rockwool Foundation, the average worker has cut their work week by an hour and twenty minutes over the past ten years, and they are spending that time with their families. Two-thirds of all couples are at home an average of four nights a week. Women on average spend nine hours on direct or indirect care of their children, while men spend six hours. Parents spend significantly more time with their children than they do at work, and children spend more time at home than in daycare or other institutions. – Kristeligt Dagblad
