It has been cited in various studies that work- family conflict has shown to reduce work performance and increase absenteeism, turnover and job dissatisfaction. It has also been shown to reduce life satisfaction, marital and family satisfaction as well as mental and physical well-being including burnout and health problems (Demerouti, Nachreiner, Bakker, &Schaufeli, 2001, Chandola et al., 2004. This leads to the dramatic changes among the job outcomes of the employees such as job performance, job satisfaction, and turnover intentions..Despite the lack of information on relationships between work-family conflict and affect at work, there is ample evidence for the negative effects of work-family conflict on psychological factors at work: Burnout (Netemeyer, Boles, & McMurruan, 1996), stress at work (Bacharach, Bamberger, & Conley,1991) and Job satisfaction (Kossek&Ozeki, 1998). According to Netemeyer, Boles, and McMurrian (1996), Work-family conflict refers to “a form of inter-role conflict in which the general demands of time devoted to, and strain created by the job interfere with performing family-related
It has been found that people who have well paid jobs are generally happier and more satisfied with their job and overall life. Jobs that involve health and safety risks are generally associated with lower levels of happiness. But other aspects such as work life balance, job variety, and level of autonomy strongly influence well being. Many studies have proven that individuals do not adapt over time to being unemployed, there can even be scarring effects. Even if individuals gain employment after being unemployed, they can be scared of losing their job once again.
Children are forced to put up walls to hide behind because they feel too unfitted to be amongst others who have fathers. An article that completes my point is, “Yes, Father Absence causes the problems it’s associated with”, (Institute for Family Studies, February 4, 2014), because Anna Sutherland exclaims that your choices play a significant role in the association between family structures and child outcomes but father absence does have lasting, effects on children’s life
“In the 21st century within households two pay-checks have become essential for most families to maintain even a modest standard of living in order to provide” (Walsh, 2012:11). Gender roles in the past decades When watching The Simpsons family interact, their family depict what a ‘nuclear family’ look like with the father being the breadwinner and the mother staying at home doing the cooking and looking after the kids. It sends a message of what a ‘traditional’ family look/ed like in the past. “Gender roles are the product of the interactions between individuals and their environments, and they give individuals cues about what sort of behaviour is believed to be appropriate
Posting 2—The Family System and Parenting Issues Part I: Family functioning is a strong predictor of child outcomes. What are the characteristics of effective families and which of these characteristics do you feel is the most essential contribution to family wellbeing?

However, because of having to repay debts, sometimes accrued by their husband or their parents, some housemaids are not able to achieve other important targets like their children’s education or be able to build a house. The migrant housemaids mostly increase their Household income savings and achieve their objectives by saving a bulk of the money in the country that they are in rather than sending it back home. In general, remittances can raise families out of poverty and enable more expenditure in health care and education for anyone who needs to be educated in the household, so no one will have to work as a labor migrant in the
Parenting styles is one factor that declines after divorce. ‘Both parents may be lonely or take on more financial responsibilities resulting in less effective parenting’ (Conger et al, 2000). ‘Due to the less effective parenting such as ineffective discipline, lack of empathy and nurturance may result in the child becoming less socially competent in conflict resolution’ (Conger et al, 2000). The relationship of the parents and children are not the only impacts. The child is more likely to associate with antisocial peers, become sexually active earlier in life and possibly have mental health problems.
We live a "free" world many confuse this and often think that they are exempted from responsibilities . But in the family dynamic there is many things that are required of us . Every family member has rights and responsibilities, many confuse privilege with rights but there is a difference the word "right" is something to which one has a lawful claim .

The family is very important in the shaping of our society whether we choose to acknowledge it or not this structure creates a balancing act in which all units carry out what is required of them to result in the running of " well oiled machine".
Too often children living in single parent households have to contend with negative stereotypes and hurtful remarks made by insensitive adults. Regardless of whether the single parent family exists as result of divorce or death of the other parent, or the parent choosing not to marry, the child is clearly not responsible for the circumstances. In this essay, the following points will be discussed and analysed i.e. father absenteeism, norms and values and abuse of children as reasons which contribute to matrifocal families and how they can contribute to the social ills in the Caribbean society.

Divorced people do not converse like they did when married, people tend to fight and bicker more therefore causes problems for the family unit. Fighting more during or after a divorce ultimately makes the issue broaden. Fighting around children in the household often leads to the children more facing problems. Children can start having trust issues. This could leave the child not knowing which parent to trust because they feel abandoned and often scared due to the constant disagreements.
