This is not surprising, but it’s interesting to see that parenting is a huge factor in alcohol consumption. And we know that our kids are more likely to become alcoholics if they’re parents.
While we don’t know a lot about how parenting influences alcohol consumption, a few studies have shown that being raised by a drunk parent is more likely to lead to an adolescent drinking problem.
It’s easy to say that this is one of the only studies showing that kids with a very high alcohol content can actually be drinking. But it’s also not true that kids with a high alcohol content are more likely to be drinkers. If these studies are taken seriously, they might actually be showing that kids who have a high alcohol content are more likely to be drinkers.
Your research doesn’t show, nor do we. That’s because we haven’t gotten enough of your research yet.
The main thing to note is that it appears that in the past seven-eights of the UK, an adult, on a high school diploma is actually a drinker. But that’s pretty much the only way to get a high-school diploma in the UK.
Our own research over the phone has revealed an interesting link between alcohol consumption and parenting. We know that when kids are raised by parents who drink, they are more likely to drink themselves, so we are inferring that it’s because parents are raising them with less discipline and control than they would if they were raised by parents who did not drink. But there’s more.
The study that has been cited shows that the type of parenting an adolescent is exposed to has a significant effect on the quantity and frequency of the drinks they drink. So it may not be just bad parenting that is causing kids to drink. It might be bad parenting that causes kids to drink to excess. And to be clear, these are all of the kids whose parents drink.
Are you familiar with the recent study that was carried out on the effects of parenting on adolescent drinking habits? It found that the more discipline and control parents have over kids, the more kids drink. It also found that those who were raised in a more strict and controlling home tended to drink less than kids who were raised in an more permissive home.
