Couples with children spend just 15 minutes of ‘quality time’ together a day

I’m sure this could be used to persuade parents they need some time away from the house and maybe making meals could be a good use of that time…

If not, it’s still pretty interesting/shocking…

Despite the many joys of parenthood, it does have its negative aspects.

And one of those is the lack of time a mother and father have for each other.

The average couple with young children manage a mere 15 minutes a day of “quality time” together – mainly in bed, a survey suggests.

Most are able to relax and chat for only five minutes before the youngsters wake up in the morning, and ten minutes at night before going to sleep.

It is hardly surprising, therefore, that a majority of parents set aside one night in the year when they leave the children with relatives and stay overnight in a hotel.

They also call on a babysitter once a month and go out to a pub or restaurant.
