The sheer amount of time parents spend with their kids between the ages of 3 and 11 has virtually no relationship to how children turn out

Do parents, especially mothers, spend enough time with their children? Though American parents are with their children more than any parents in the world, many feel guilty because they don’t believe it’s enough.

THE MEETING SPACE FOR THE DELIVERY ECOSYSTEM Dear colleague, will drone delivery be possible in the UK? Delivery is what helps put commerce into ecommerce.
