Intensive Parenting is what's happened to families now that we spend much less time together. It's estimated parents now spend four hours a week less with their children than they did a generation ago. Assuming we're all under the one roof during sleep time, it's a significant chunk of time that's missing in the parent/child dynamic. How do modern parents make up this gap? It's called Intensive Parenting and it's the modern phenomenon that sees parents and children constantly making sure all their time is used as productively as possible.
