Hispanic Center E-Update
January 18, 2018
All children benefit from time spent with their parents, whether it’s reading, playing, or engaging in some other activity. We also know that the activities of daily life—including work and work schedules—shape the quantity and quality of time that mothers and fathers have available to spend with their children.

Our latest infograhic takes a look an average day of a Latino parent and compares it to days of their white and black peers. We find that, in a typical day, low-income Latina moms spend over three hours in housework more than low-income white and black moms. And, low-income Latino dads spend more time in paid work, but less time with their children than low-income white or black dads. You'll also learn more interesting stats, including what parents are doing when they spend time with their children.
