Modern lifestyles mean that many parents have little time for their children. Many children suffer because they do not get as much attention from their parents as children did in the past. Do you agree or disagree?

背景介绍：People who say that nowadays parents give less attention to their children than in the past are often looking back to a short period of time in the twentieth century when mothers in middle-class families stayed at home to look after their children.
个人立场：But today, the situation has changed.
主题句：The majority of families in the past both parents worked more than they do nowadays.
递进解释：What has changed is that now in most countries their children go to school rather than also working themselves. In that sense they may have less contact with their parents.
主题句：Nowadays, as a result of going to school, children come into contact with teachers who naturally have to explain why some of their students are failing.
递进解释：What teachers come up with are lots of stories of parents who are simple too busy for their children. And if children are not supervised by their parents, they will often underperform at school. However, academic failure is nothing new even when one or both parents are at home. If children are neglected by their parents, they will suffer.
I guess children probably had more problems in the past when they and their parents had to work non-stop just to get by. These days, the law looks after children and they can go to school, so children have lots more chances than they ever had before.
