Free time plays one of the most important roles in shaping the character, attitude and personality in the life of every human being. It is an inseparable element of education for proper functioning in the school environment and in later adult life. The dangers that result from the lack of free time and its improper use will be reflected in the later years of life.
The aim of the study is to present and analyze the risks resulting from the lack of free time that parents should devote to their children in the 9-14 age range in the opinion of family members.
In the presented work, the diagnostic survey method was used, and the questionnaire in the online form served as a tool. In total, 103 people were surveyed using the survey, mainly from the Podkarpackie Voivodeship.
The results of the study showed that parents engage and devote their time to spending it with their children, but they spend it far too little. Parents are aware of the benefits of spending free time together, which is very important in education for proper spending of free time.
Parents, being aware of the benefits of spending free time together with their children, try to devote their free time to them. The main barrier to more time spent together is a large amount of time devoted to work. However, the desire to ensure prosperity and all material goods is not a priority for respondents, because they try to devote their free time to children.
