On the other hand, in this era of cut-throat competition, people spend more time on their study and work. Meanwhile, Compared to the past, people have to face fiercer competition and suffer greater pressure nowadays. Therefore, they have to devote more time and energy to their careers. For example, many jobs require people to work in other cities and many children have to leave their parents at an early age to study or work elsewhere. That is why to some extent communication has decreased among family members.
Today families communicate with each other as much as or even more than the past via the cell phone and internet. Earlier, when a member of the family went to another city or country for study or for a business trip, the landline phone or the traditional letter was the only means of communication. Today, families have minute-to-minute information about each other and many applications such as Skype have made video chat so easy and good that distances seem no barrier at all and communication has become even more frequent.
