Our take: Researchers found that parents may have a skewed perception of what their family is really like. Stephanie Hanes from The Christian Science Monitor shares the areas where parents have unrealistic views of their children:
"Even before the heartbreaking shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, American parents were anxious about child rearing.
According to a report that came out earlier this month from the University of Virginia's Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, less than a quarter of US moms and dads believe this is a great time to be bringing children into the world, and most say it is tougher to raise children today than it was 50 years ago. Fewer than 1 parent in 10 thinks the quality of American family life has improved since they were growing up."
