The relationship between work and family can have different effects on individuals. As such, Family Conflict: Perspectives, Management and Outcomes presents a new look at the relationship between family and work, focusing on the effect that a mentor can have on family support and the hardships that individuals may experience while managing the boundaries between their work and their family.

The authors review the existing literature regarding the effects of smartphone use on work to family interference, individual-related outcomes of recovery, psychological detachment, relaxation, stress, and wellbeing.

Following this, the nature of effective parenting is examined by integrating the construct of emotional availability within a context-specific theoretical framework. In broader terms, emotional availability refers to parental sensitivity, non-intrusiveness, structuring, and non-hostility, as well as child’s responsiveness and involvement (Biringen 2000).

A detailed overview of the current knowledge on helicopter parenting behavior is provided, and the recent literature regarding its effects on the psychological well-being of emerging adults is discussed.
