The Myth of Quality Time: How We're Cheating Our Kids, What You Can Do.
Shapiro, Laura
Newsweek, v129 n19 p62,64-69 May 12 1997
Notes that increasingly, parents are questioning the benefits of "pencilling in" time with their children like a business appointment. Explores development of the concept of quality time, and how children's needs, such as attention and consistency, are subjugated. Suggests that parents can make choices, to reduce work hours, relocate less frequently, and spend their time at a slower pace. (HTH)
