Purpose: The transition from office to work-from-home (WFH) has lead to an increased interest in the effects of this transition, not only on the quality of work obtained but also on the mental health of individuals. Research in this topic is expanding with different perspectives in focus. This review aims to identify the significant factors influenced by WFH and the consequential effects on working parents.

Materials and Methods

To write this review, 4 databases are being explored - SCOPUS, Emerald, EBSCO, and Web of Science. Papers reviewed are selected using the keywords work from home, well-being, mental health, work-life balance, and family combined with parents, family, working mother, or working father. The papers have been selected for the past 25 years. An attempt is being made to review at least 53 articles. Findings/Theoretical Implications: This paper will highlight the advantages and disadvantages parents face while balancing work and family. The review will give a comprehensive impression of the mental health state of working parents. Value: The study will enable future researchers to identify currently unexplored issues and design their studies based on the same.
