New research shows about a third of kids think their parents are spending too much time at work.
A study of 10 and 11-year-olds found that 35 percent felt their dad worked too much, while 27 percent said their mum worked too much.
But Jennifer Baxter from the Australian Institute of Family study says working isn't always a bad thing.
"Parents say that their working has a positive effect on their children. This might be because parents enjoy the social interaction from work, they feel satisfied doing meaningful or interesting work, these things can flow through to children."
It's Families Day in New Zealand today.
