Kids Are Scared Of Drunk Adults

Children get scared to many things in and around the surroundings. It is said that one third of children feel scared when they see adults are drunk. According to a survey says, half of the children saw their parents getting drunk at some point of time.Children said that their parents drink alchol and also reported that out of 10 children seven of them have seen their parents drunk.
  Children with 46 percent who were surveyed expressed that adults should not drink in front of children, while 32 per cent thought this was all right, and 22 per cent were unsure.When children were given a list of words to describe how they felt when they saw adults drinking it was found that 47 per cent were not bothered at all. And 30 percent told that they feel scared. Some children even noticed
one or more behavioural changes in them.
        “There has been much discussion about levels of drinking, but the social impact is rarely explored from a child’s point of view. Alcohol is present in the lives of most of our audience in one way or another, yet it is something they may not feel confident talking about,” quoted Damian Kavanagh, Controller of CBBC as saying.
