The first comprehensive study ever conducted that asks children and parents for their views on work and family life today. It questions accepted thinking on such issues as quality time vs. quantity time, how mothers parent their children compared to fathers, how much children really know about the daily lives of parents at work, what messages we're sending children about work, and more. Parents will hear children's perceptions and opinions on these and other topics. They'll hear parents and children talking about what works to keep families close and why. They'll find practical advice for a better family life and a brilliant new set of operating principles to help them feel more in command and control at work and at home.
