The study attempts to understand the issue of parent seeking migratory work through a sociological analysis. Migration plays an important role in the population dynamic of a country. There are two types of migration: Internal and International migration. This research is mainly focused on international labour migration. After introducing the open economic system in Sri Lanka in 1977 a large number of consisting both men and women migrated to take up jobs in the Middle Eastern countries, on the other hand the numbers migrating to Italy in search of employment also increased. Under the survey and case study methods data were collected by questionnaire, direct interview and the observation. Families of parents in Sri Lanka engaged in foreign employment are faced with more negative consequences than positive consequences.
