Pandemic became one of the most feared unseen enemy where people are forced to stay at home. The pandemic brought everybody home, from their work, school and other activities outside the house. Hence, the study focused on adolescents who are under the distance learning modality. The study delved on the perceived challenges and opportunities of distance learning to their family relationship. This study will add dearth to parent-child relationship in this time of pandemic specifically on adolescents as they are in the stage of storm and stress. The study utilized the use of qualitative research design using an online version of pen and paper type of interview through Google form. The qualitative research design explores the different effects of pandemic specifically in the education system and family relationship where majority of schools offered distance learning modality in the Philippines. Purposive sampling was employed to the 60 adolescents from senior high school to second-year college students under distance learning modality since they are at the stage where social interaction is vital. Content analysis was also utilized to interpret the result of the study. The result of the study showed a relationship shift in the adolescents’ development where adolescents shift to closeness rather than conflict, dependence rather than independence and spending more time with their family than friends in social media. The distance learning became an avenue for adolescents to seek help from their parents and parents be closer to their children.
