DADS are working too much and it is having a profound impact on their kids' mental health and happiness.
A new study of 3000 Aussie dads has found they are working longer hours - an average of 44-hours a week, with 21.5 per cent working greater than 55-hours a week.
Fathers are spending less and less time with their children and their kids are feeling it.
More than half of dads reported missing family events because of work and a fifth described their family time more pressured and less fun due to their jobs.
More than 40 per cent of dads worked nights and weekends to support their families.
