    A very handy short guide to how to support children of alcoholics, who will often deny that they need help. Connecting and intervening with skill early on ups the odds that they will develop vitality and resiliency, and ability to enjoy and live life more fully. This would he helpful for teachers as well as mental health people, as they are the only people outside of family that some children are in frequent contact with. And alcohol abuse is everywhere.

    Thank you for this article! I was recently seen on The Dr. Drew show discussing my book, Understanding The Fall, which is my story of growing up with an alcoholic parent. My book is for all ages — but especially for children trying to understand their alcoholic parent (can be found on my website http://www.susanmcmartin.com or on amazon). Again, thank you for shining light on this issue. There is hope.

    Please recommend some books for teens with an alcoholic parent. I can hardly find anything for youth. We do not have an AL-ATEEN anywhere near our area.And I feel its not enough to tell them they shouldnt drink.I would like to see more for them.
    Thank you,
    Ross
