Abstract

With globalization, challenges facing the Filipino families have become more complex. families try to cope with these challenges the best way they can, and, in the process, endangers the cohesiveness of families with children the hardest hit victims of such conditions. Governments try to provide programs and interventions to help families; but oftentimes, these interventions are not sufficient since the problems are more deeply-rooted in the family system - and is something that mere provision of services cannot simply address. And yet, the family remains to be an enduring institution in Philippine society. It is the web that links the past to the present, and gives a sense of an anchor for the future. It is for these reasons that a study on possible indicators on the well-being of the Filipino family was conducted to track changes on family life over time. Family stability, parenting effectiveness, social responsibility, and rights perspective were the four major rights initially identified and discussed. This study is expected to lead towards the development os a score card for the Filipino Family Well-Being which can be done on a periodic basis.
