Work-related stress or family-related stress heavily influences various aspects of one's career, and work-family conflict is the most important stress in this regard. Due to participation and working on two roles, strains lead to conflicting work life. Job and parental stresses relate positively to family conflicts in the workplace and this conflict can have a serious health effect. Managing conflicts over the work life increases employee engagement. Employees need to handle work and family transitions properly, and define a boundary between them, otherwise the overlap between them can lead to burnout. With the teaching profession becoming more and more attractive to the female younger generations, it is, therefore, crucial to throw more light on the influence of work and family life conflict among female teachers and their Job satisfaction in our schools.
