UK: Poor parenting increases likelihood of binge drinking at ages 16 and 34

A study of over 15,000 children by the think tank Demos shows parenting style is one of the most important and statistically reliable influences on whether a child will drink responsibly in adolescence and adulthood.
Demos found that ‘tough love’ parenting, combining consistent warmth and discipline, was the most effective parenting style to prevent unhealthy relationships with alcohol right into the mid-thirties age range.
The report Under the Influence found that: Bad parenting at age 10 makes the child twice as likely to drink excessively at age 34
– Bad parenting at age 16 makes the child over eight times more likely to drink excessively at that age
– Bad parenting at age 16 makes the child over twice as likely to drink excessively at age 34. … (Source: Alcohol Reports, 08/27/11) demos.co.uk, 08/28/11

College Drinkers At Risk For Adult Alcohol Abuse

Study Helps Identify College Drinkers At Risk For Adult Alcohol Abuse
College students who are problem drinkers using alcohol to cope with personal problems and boost self-confidence are more likely to continue excessive drinking into adulthood, a recent study suggests.
