DALLAS, May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The most resounding family memories are not always grounded in long-standing traditions, but often the in-between moments that are imperfect and unexpected. With more dual-income families and kids taking part in after-school activities, however, everyday moments are increasingly getting lost in the shuffle. In fact, recent research shows that some instances of family moments, like family dinners, have decreased by 33 percent over the past 20 years.*
"Kimberly-Clark products like Huggies diapers and Kleenex facial tissues play an essential role in supporting families across a variety of life stages," said Lori Borchardt, Kimberly-Clark Brand Manager. "We are excited to illuminate these touch points between consumers and our brands with an exclusive and intimate portrait into everyday family life with the help of our partners."
