A step in the right direction

According to this story in the New York Times today, parents, both married and single, are spending more time with their children.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 — Despite the surge of women into the work force, mothers are spending at least as much time with their children today as they did 40 years ago, and the amount of child care and housework performed by fathers has sharply increased, researchers say in a new study, based on analysis of thousands of personal diaries.

This is the kind of study we need to see more of-- I can imagine the researchers sneaking into windows and digging under pillows to find diaries to analyze. It's a step in the right direction for sure-- now that parents have been caught paying attention to their kids, let's slip some devotion books into those diaries too!
