Summary/Abstract: The negative consequences are felt by parents leaving children in the first place, the psychological - the father went missing may result in a feeling of loneliness of the child for a certain period of time. Feelings of depression can be alleviated if the child was accustomed to live in an extended family. Lack of interest in school and extracurricular concerns may be a direct consequence of absent parents, but low interest in school performance can not be explained only by a single causal factor. Also the lack of parental affection as a result of parents going abroad default is able to produce psychological and behavioral effects on children.
