Paluku Kazimoto, Darcile Nziavake Siherya


In many families, conflicts are unavoidable. Lack of respect, communication, and harmony create frictions between partners and family members. The conflict has an effect on the future socio-economic growth of children. Conflict is a misunderstanding between parents. Many factors are causes of conflicts. Banks (2015) reported that among those sources lack of financial autonomy, in-laws (especially mothers-in-law) involved in disagreements of husband/wife, lack of employment, etc. Many children have suffered and living out of their parental care because of their conflicts. This study provides considerate contributions to the understanding of the causes of household conflicts and their impact on children socio-economic growth. Survey and correlational research designs were used. A questionnaire was distributed to 167 respondents selected using the purpose-sampling technique. The findings show that there is very significant positive influence from households’ causes of conflicts and children socio-economic growth. It is also observed from results a negative relationship between parents and no care for children, which lead children to drop out from their studies (r=-0.154, p=0.047). Therefore, lack of adequate family conflicts management has led many families irresponsible to take care of their children socio-economic growth because of frictions between parents.
