The working young woman of the present day on entering the work after marriage has challenges like pregnancy leading to maternity and the ever demanding role of being a mother to her children. Added on to this is the responsibility of looking after the elderly like the parents-in law and her own parents. This has resulted in a situation where women entering the workforce today are laying more emphasis on the importance of work and family balance; hence there is a need to examine the phenomenon of the work-family conflict of Indian working women. The time constraints women face along with other challenges creates conflicts in their roles, as care providers for children and as well as providers of family income, and this has serious implications on the welfare of their children. So to analysis the level of conflict and how it affects the growth children the study have been attempted.
