Excessive parental stress is passed on to the child.
"Observations of dual-earner couples and their children have confirmed the frequent occurrence of mental health problems in children," the Australian National University research team said.
Children's mental problems were worse if they had long hours of parental work, high work intensity, and anxiety about employment. Parents are more likely to be screamed or angry at home because of stress from their workplace.
The bigger problem is that once a child is hurt, it is difficult to improve even if the situation of the parents gets better.
"If it is impossible to reconcile work and family, it is important to create a family-friendly atmosphere because it will harm both the couple and their children," he said.
