This chapter discusses gaps and broken links, while other chapters looked at networks and ties. It also discusses how this negative impact of migration influences Polish opinion about migration by whole families. It analyses Polish media coverage of the plight of children left by their migrant parents. It briefly discusses the situation of parents whose children have gone abroad, of schools that have lost students and of friends who have lost friends, of all ages. It notes that the most important factor promoting whole family migration is the geographical separation between spouses that frequently leads to emotional distancing and even divorce.

Keywords:   networks, migration, media coverage, children, parents, family migration, geographical separation, emotional distancing, divorce
