This study focuses on the effects and consequences alcoholic parents have on adult children. A major part of this study is a comparison and analysis made on adult children with alcoholic parents and adult children with non-alcoholic parents. The paper also includes the result of a survey conducted on college students, which provides the data used for analysis. Furthermore, to demonstrate that parental alcoholism is a problem not specific to a particular society, and that it is a problem being faced by many families worldwide, multicultural aspects of the subject are included.
From the Paper:"The effect of alcoholism is most visible in the adolescence period of a child with alcoholic parents. This is due to the fact that the period of adolescence is where the social ability of a child to interact and relate with others in a mature manner starts to develop. Also, it is the period where the viewpoint and attitude of a child towards the nature of other people and his environment starts to establish."
