FIFO Challenges


FIFO - what should we discuss to make life as a FIFO better.

The impact of absent FIFO parents (primarily fathers) on their children and schooling has yet to be the subject of a major study, but it is likely that the separation anxiety experienced by the children of FIFO workers is similar to that of military families before, during and after deployment.[9] Research published in Australia in 2014 suggests that children of fly-in fly-out parents suffer emotionally from the parent's absence, more frequently become the targets of schoolyard bullying, and may evince additional bad behavior. However, such children often receive greater incentive to succeed academically, and some such children appreciate the extended time at home available for FIFO parents.
