Globalisation and related economic and social changes have seriously transformed the traditional family structure. The topic of my dissertation is the context of migration creating a one of a kind cohabitation, family relations and situation of the children referred to today as euro-orphans. The idea of a transnational family or transnational parenthood indicates a change of the social role of the parent. Transformation of the present stationary family model into a mobile family is simultaneously a cultural change. It is manifested by communication via media rather than direct relations, by slackening of family ties, emotional deprivation resulting from feeling bereft, and by family disintegration. Consequently, it leads to family dysfunction or even breakdown. Besides profits, migration generates enormous mental and social costs resulting from separation between the child and the parents. Therefore, we are facing a problem of providing economic support to the family and upsetting its stability at the same time.
