Abstract: In this paper, we describe a questionnaire study exploring the everyday problems of working parents. A total of 715 working parents rated the extent to which 27 problems affected their everyday lives. The data were analyzed in terms of severity of problem and differences in terms of gender, age of children, and country of origin. The findings point to important areas for the development of new technologies to support a person's whole lifestyle.
