Many people are busy with work and do not have enough time to spend with family and friends. Why does this happen? What are the effects of this on family life and society as a whole

It seems to be an increasingly widespread concern that overwork is stealing our family time. And I think that the keen social competition and modern communication technology are probably responsible for this. 

In the past, it is not uncommon that the husband worked to earn money, while the wife stayed home to rear children. This is no longer always the case. Nowadays, both men and women have to work to cover increasing cost of living. And due to booming population and globalization, people have to compete not only with more and more domestic university graduates, but with qualified job applicants overseas, in order to obtain a good position in the workplace. Meanwhile, employees have to work as hard as others and often work overtime to keep a decent job. So, the intense social rivalry is one of root causes why people have less quality family time.

Another important factor contributing to this phenomenon is the advanced communication technology. For example, mobile phones and internet have increased work efficiency on the one hand, but on the other hand they have reduced the time people spend with those who they care about. In the past, we would visit our parent’s home and stayed with them for several hours in a traditional festival. Later, as mobile phones became popular, we might give them a two-minute call in that case; now we could express our regards by sending a short message within seconds.

 Of cause, this issue is bringing some negative effects to both family life and society. The husband and wife may be too tired to have quality family time after work; when they come back home too late, they can not talk and play with sleeping kids. While material wealth is accumulated, the feeling of friendship and love among people gets weaker. The problem most families already have is a social issue. Although many counties deem a higher GDP as the indicator of social progress, I personally do not think this figure can fully represent the greater happiness and well-being of the human race.
