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
spent close to an hour more taking care of their kids in 2012 than mothers did in
1965. Dads now spend almost an hour partaking in childcare activities, compared to
fathers in 1965, who spent just 16 minutes, on average.
