Working parents have no time for kids
A recent survey says that working parents spend not more than 30 minutes a day with their children and fathers may not even get that half an hour to interact with their kids.
The survey, carried out on a sample 3,000 working couples in various companies across cities by Assocham’s Social Development Foundation, found that couples spent a majority of the time in office.
With little supervision from parents, children are turning to other options like TV, computer games, DVD and junk food instead of outdoor activities.
The survey points out that parents who work long or irregular hours are not available for children after school, especially to help with the homework, not able to attend school functions or sports days and not even able to do things together on weekends.
