Of the children surveyed by the Child Welfare League Foundation (CWLF), 51.6 percent said they talked with their parents for less than 30 minutes a day, while some reported doing so for even less than 10 minutes a day.

The survey found that even when they do talk, the conversations are mostly about schoolwork, which was cited as a common topic by 80.7 percent of respondents. The next most common topics were daily routines and friends, which were cited by 71.2 percent and 52.8 percent of respondents, respectively.

The results showed that parents were most concerned about their children’s academic performance, CWLF executive director Chen Li-ju said Saturday.    [FULL  STORY]
