Things have changed quite a bit, but is anyone (including the children) happier or better off?

I don’t know who is calculating the numbers, but I just can’t believe that mothers spend *more* time with their kids. Unless they count the drive to daycare as time with their kids. Most mothers I know don’t spend anywhere near 2 solid hours a day with their children — a very not good thing.

Do you know the source of the data? American Time Use Survey (which I don’t think has family status…)? Some other source? I’d be curious to know where the work-week stats came from…
