GUESTS: ELLEN GALINSKY *Author, Ask the Children: What America's Children Really Think about Working Parents (William Morrow & Co, 1999) Working parents often wrestle with guilt over leaving their children in the care of others, and wonder if their kids would be better off with fewer luxuries and more quality time with their parents.

Join Ray Suarez and guests for a look at the surprising results of a study of kids' attitudes about working parents.
