To what extent a parent's drinking problem affects a child depends on many different factors. Based on earlier research and interview data we drew the conclusion that growing up in a family where a parent has a drinking problem has a negative effect on all children. Some children show symptoms during their childhood by being aggressive or avoiding social contacts, for others the problems of their childhood starts to show only when they have their own children. By using different survival strategies the child can manage getting trough the childhood without unveiling to anyone what is happening at home. The most important thing for these children to do well is to have another adult person that they trust and can talk to. (Less)
