Guila M. Dotti Sani of the European University Institute and Judith Treas of the University
of California, Irvine found that modern mothers from 11 wealthy, western countries

1965. Dads now spend almost an hour partaking in childcare activities, compared to
fathers in 1965, who spent just 16 minutes, on average.
