    article: 'prominent research institutes showing that time at home with the kids is a major concern of both sexes."

    Just wondering about if they feel this in principle or because they are going to actually spend more time with the kids.

    Have just had experiences with two people this summer(one man one women, different families) who routinely were getting bonus time off for various reasons and the manner that that time was spent was:
    1. Going running
    2. Sleeping
    3. Internet surfing
    4. Reading
    5 Going to the gym
    6. Going to the movies
    7. Going out with friends
    8. Watching TV
    9. Texting and Facebook on phone
    The only thing that either of them did that was remotely considered not a self-focused activity was one went swimming with the family, but spent all the time doing their own training instead of interacting with their children.

    I'm all for more balance to allow time for being with children, but in these two cases, its been basically ZERO time spent. :( :(
