Alcohol Consumption And Family Life

This study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation examined how parents teach young children (aged 5 to 12) about alcohol. It explored parental attitudes towards alcohol, and family drinking practices, using a national survey and in-depth case studies. It found that: Parents are the most important influence on young children's attitudes to alcohol; Parents are largely successful at conveying the social pleasures and risks of drinking at home and the message that alcohol should be consumed in moderation; There are gaps in what children learn from home such as the health consequences of drinking and the potential risks of drinking outside the home.
