Abstract: The study analyzes how Romanian families with minor children spend their individual and family leisure time, in correlation to social and family values, to the residence environment, to the family’s financial situation and to the parents’ education level. The research is based on an innovative mix of social investigation instruments (questionnaires, interviews, time budget and alternative scenarios), highlighting leisure behaviors of parents as individuals and of families as a group. The results also show how young students foresee their leisure time in 10-15 years. The paper’s originality consists in its relevance for both individuals and industries, as the results also present methods for gaining leisure time in contrast to the engaged and contracted time, including leisure services, gadgets and household appliances. For families with children, the richer the family is, the higher the leisure activities are taking place during the weekend; also, statistical data indicate that the leisure weekend activities are also dependent on the urban residence.
