- Father involvement, parenting, childcare with migrant worker mothers
- Indonesia is one of the largest source countries of migrant workers. In 2018, Indonesia was ranked as the 2nd most migrant workers sender country in ASEAN after the Philippines. Migrant workers have to leave their families and/or their children. BNP2TKI reported that between 2011 and January 2018, 60% of the total number of Indonesian Migrant Worker (IMW) are women. Many of them left very young children. The absence of parents, especially mothers since the early age hypothetically affects the children’s development. Reviewing existing literature about migrant workers’ family and children, this paper argues that traditional migration where women leave their families has created a change in family structure and gender division of labor in the family. We recommend further investigation on social perception about the changing roles between father and mother.
