George Barna, The Future of the American Family, Moody, 1993.

Feeling Guilty

In his recent book The Future of the American Family (Moody, 1993), George Barna noted the following, "According to a nationwide survey conducted by the Los Angeles Times in 1990, most parents (56%) feel guilty about not spending enough time with their children" (p. 171). In the same chapter Barna noted, "A study in 1991 by the National Commission on Children reported that six out of ten parents want to spend more time with their families" (p 172).
