“Just Make Sure You Can Get up to Parent the Next Day” presented at Society for Social Work and Research
Jennifer Price Wolf and Raul Chavez present a qualitative study examining how parents make decisions about when, where, and how much to drink alcohol.
The main points of this presentation were:
-Parent decisions about whether and how much alcohol to drink differ by drinking context
-Parents view drinking with family members at large get-togethers as safe, due to the presence of other adults to monitor children
-Drinking at home (regardless of the amount) was viewed as setting a bad example for children
