Parents have a key role in avoiding their children's alcohol addiction
Parents are disappointed when they find that they can not prevent their child from getting in early contact with alcoholic beverages. Festivals and friends' houses are good places for alcohol to be tasted. But the good news is that parents' lifestyles can help their children avoid developing addiction to drinking, according to a study by Brigham Young University in the US
The study, which will be published in the July issue of the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs examined over 5,000 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 19 who were questioned about their drinking habits and their relationship with their parents. The level of responsibility and commitment to the children has also been assessed. The researchers found that:
- Adolescents less likely to create drinking addiction had very responsible and affectionate parents;
- Those affective but unreliable parents contributed to triple the risk of adolescent participation
- Adolescents who had extremely responsible but unloving parents had doubled rates of acquiring a drinking habit.
- Statistical analysis also showed that religious teens were significantly less likely to drink any alcoholic beverage .
According to the researchers, the innovation of this study is in distinguishing any alcohol consumption from drinking addiction. Previous studies have placed parents' relationship and drinking at the same level, showing modest influence at best. "If parents can not prevent their children from experiencing alcoholic beverages, they can have a significant impact on the most dangerous type of drinking habit, addiction," said Stephen Bahr, a professor at BYU College of Family, Home and Science
The companions of an adolescent also play a fundamental role in the habits and consumption of these, including the consumption of alcoholic beverages. However, the researchers pointed out that children of caring and responsible people tended to have companies with similar lifestyles. "The teenage period is kind of a transitional period and sometimes parents have a hard time working it out," Bahr said. "Although friends are very important, parents are responsible for what the child will be."
