The purpose of the ethnological interview is to listen to and gather as much edifying information as possible in order to obtain an overview of a phenomenon or subject analysed. Qualitative research is a way to understand better, how people feel or what they think about a particular problem. 1 The desire to desire to accumulate a considerable income abroad and to transfer a part of the accumulated capital (remittances) to the country of origin of the emigrant explains the migration phenomenon. Remittances sent by Romanian emigrants have a number of destinations: personal expenses, real estate investments, and the education of children left at home and the avoidance of dropping out of school. Migration involves some risks, as is well known, being a very complex phenomenon, we can even add that it is a particularly sensitive one, especially for the children of emigrants left at home, the psychological costs borne by them may remain even after many years of family reunification.
