A major study conducted recently found that the children whose parents are divorced, before they are five are more likely to become binge drinkers at the age of 16, when compared to the children whose parents stay together.
The experts team analyzed the drinking habits of nearly 32,000 people over three decades. They found that the difference in the upbringing of the child shows a greater impact on the drinking habits of the people.
The study also found that teens of 16 years age, whose parents are divorced are eight times more likely to become binge drinkers when compared to children whose parents are engaged. They also released a shocking data, which says that children who are much pampered at the age of five are less likely to drink excessively at the age of 16.
The study which formed a detailed statistical analysis of two huge sets of data, finally concludes that parenting style is enormously important in shaping a child's views on alcohol. It also mentioned that parents play a major role in shaping the way their children drink in later stage.
They also reported saying that parents who control their children too much by enforcing strict rules and regulations in the house are more likely to adopt bad habits in their future life. Parents need to bring up their children with a combination of discipline and affection, then they will definitely grow up in to brighter teens who spend their entire life with out involving in any bad habits.
Parents should behave like friends with their teen children and at the same time, should be like a teacher who will let them know what is good and what is not. They should clearly explain them about the things which are appreciated by the people in the society, so that they try to adopt them to lead a better life.
