Help for kids of Alcoholic Parents

If you are in a family where somebody drinks too much alcohol (like beer, wine, or whiskey), some painful and confusing things may be happening to you. You may think you are the only person who is in a family like that.

The truth is that there are almost 14 million alcoholic people in the United States. They are hurting a lot inside, and they often hurt or neglect their families as well. If your family is troubled like this, it's important for you to know that you are not alone. There are people who will understand, listen, and help. Right Now!

You cannot force your family to get help. You can get help. You can change your life. Talk about it with someone you trust.

Maybe you don't have a parent with a drinking problem, but you have a friend who needs help. Some of the ways you might help is to be understanding and to listen carefully. Talking about things with friends can be a big help! Encourage your friend to talk to a trusted adult.

    • Tips on Conflict Resolution for Kids Stop and Think, don't loose Prevent Child Abuse America©

      • Listen when the other person is speaking.
      • Try to understand the speakers point of view before you share yours.
      • Think before you speak, words hurt. Say exactly what you mean, in a clear non threatening tone.
      • Move away quickly from anyone who has a weapon, is impaired by drugs or alcohol. This is no time to hold a discussion on the merrits of ones behavior. This is not the time to resolve conflicts. Call 911 for help.
      • Think about it, violence on TV may look exciting, funny and even heroic. In real life, violence is frightening and dangerous. There is no glory in dying or killing another person.
      • AVOID people who tease or threaten others. Who needs friends like that, life is tough enough without them.
      • REMEMBER, belonging to a group is fun. But sometimes groups can pressure you into doing things that are wrong, and when the police come knocking, guess who they point!!! Don't let others think for you, because they won't stand up for you, only you can, and will when the time comes for you to pay the price for what you did for the "group".
      • WALK AWAY when you're too angry to be reasonable. Cool down. Then come back and talk it out, calmly!!
      • Have a problem, ask a cool headed friend or adult to help you solve it.
      • Respect yourself and others too. Even people who are differnent in dress, appearance, or some other way deserve to be treated just how you would like to be treated....With Respect!
