The effects of overseas filipino workers in their children

Overseas Filipino Workers sacrifice a lot to provide a better life for their families in the Philippines. They spent holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, New Year and other important occasions away from their families. It has an effect of the children of Ofw's. No money can replace the hug of a father or mother, no toy or balikbayan box can take the place of the quality time spent together with ones family. Children will feel that they are missing the love of their father and or mother but it doesn't have to be that way. The Internet has tools to can bring families together for free. These tools can provide ways for families to see and hear each other for free. It gives them the chance to connect and spent quality time even if they are hundreds of miles away.

Ofw sacrifices and reasons why they leave

Here in the Philippines poverty is rampant, the hardships of life are in one package already. That’s why many Filipinos work overseas looking for greener pastures, to provide appropriate needs for there family, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) also have the prestige to be called our new heroes for they send foreign money inside the Philippines with it we are able to pay the dept of our nation where it had been already ballooned into billions because of our incapable government.

These are the reasons why they leave:

First reason poverty, poverty is everywhere, it is all over the world and we cannot deny that the Nation of the Philippines is not excluded to it for it is even a third world country.

Secondly, Overpopulation the population of the Philippines is estimated 99,900,177million (July 2010 est.) by looking closely, the demands for workers decreases because the quantity of people needing a job is overflowing.

Third! One big impact is our incapable government, yes! We know that they are trying there best to eradicate this poverty plague in our nation but it is not enough to make up all the things that the people really need, they need a right government who are not blind, mute and cannot hear to know what is happening to our dying nation.

Lastly the lazy “houseband” or husband I should say, the father is the provider of the house, this is our in dogma all over the world but sadly to say here in the Philippines this is where you can find abundantly these housebands.

These are the Advantage and Disadvantages of OFW


1. You could just have the root of all kinds of evil which money. That's the main purpose of working abroad.
2. You will have more relatives and friends.


1. Far from your families and friends.
2. You have to adjust to your new environment.
3. The Philippine goverment considers OFW's as living heroes but if you are in trouble you may realize that most heroes are suffering from death. 4. For the first time being an OFW, you have to be ready for the unknown. 5. If you have chidren, Sorry you could not see them growing up. 6. Its just a waste of time. Just stay home and enjoy what's in there.
