My parents drink too much

My parents drink too much. I don’t mean wine with dinner. They get mean or pass out when they drink. It’s awful. How can I get them to stop?


Dear Bad Situation,

You can’t make them stop, but you are not alone and can get help for this very serious problem. There are many support systems for kids. Alcoholism is a common disease that wreaks havoc on many families. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an organization that helps people swear off drinking, one day at a time. Alateen is part of AA and is for kids who have family members with drinking problems.


Visit or Or call 1-88-4AL-ANON on weekdays—the call does not show up on your phone bill.


If possible, enlist an aunt, uncle, grandparent or other adult relative who doesn’t drink to help you confront your parents with compassion, not accusations. Some people throw loved ones a “surprise party” with an agenda. Several near and dear ones gather to say, “We’re worried about you and love you too much to watch you drink your life away. You need to get help.” The drinkers’ first response is likely to be anger and denial. But, eventually, many drinkers become ex-drinkers. Good luck.
