Work and family, the central life roles for most employed women and men in the modern society, can either benefit or harm each other; they may be allies or they may be enemies. People are finding it increasingly tough to develop pursuits outside of work that increase their quality of life. Parents find themselves working more and more hours — with crucial implications for the development of the next generation. We've observed something that runs much deeper: the psychological impact and intrusion of work on home and of home on work. The clash between work and family has real consequences.
