WANDEKOKEN, Kallen Dettmann; VICENTE, Creuza Rachel  and  SIQUEIRA, Marluce Miguel de. Parental alcoholism and associated risk factors. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.3, pp. 161-167. ISSN 1806-6976.

The abusive use of alcohol at an early age becomes a predisposing factor for health, social and economic problems; thus, this research sought to identify risk conditions related to children and adolescents exposed to parental alcoholism. A systematic review was conducted, using the descriptors "alcoholism, risk factors and children", of papers published between 2005 and 2009 in Lilacs, Medline, Scielo and Adolec databases. Problems were found related to alcohol use by children; in relation to behavior and/or in relation to children's emotional factors, implying the need to discuss the issue in order to contribute to the formulation of public policies aimed at this population.

Keywords : Alcoholism; Risk Factors; Father-Child Relations.
