I heard this on Good Morning America the other day (March 10). It was a short segment about the need teenagers have of parental supervision and influence, a need perhaps bigger in this age group than that of preschoolers. Also written about at www.abcnews.go.com
and in the Lady's Home Journal.
I was home with my preschoolers much more than I was away, but as the mother of 3 teenagers, I can see their point. The first 2 were/are no problem. My 14yo, let's just say our work with him is not done! I'm happy to be working agency now for more flexibility with my schedule.

I'd rather be home with them all the time. Why do we HAVE to choose?
They need us. Period.
