Over the Limit: The Truth about Families and Alcohol

Over the Limit: The Truth about Families and Alcohol, warns of a silent epidemic of alcohol misuse by British families. The report warns that too many parents remain oblivious to the negative effects that alcohol can have on their parenting. An alarming 19% believe alcohol has a positive effect on their parenting ability and 62% of parents say that their drinking behaviour has no impact on their family at all.

Some of the key findings the report highlights are:
  1. 22% of children live with a parent who drinks hazardously
  2. 6% of children (around 700,000 across the country) live with a dependent drinker
  3. 62% of children who were subject to care proceedings were from families with parental alcohol misuse
  4. More than a third of all domestic violence cases involve alcohol
