Features of family dynamics may influence drug consumption. This study aimed to comprehend parenting practices in families of crack cocaine users. This is a qualitative research, carried out through individual interviews applied to 20 family members of crack cocaine addicts enrolled at a mental health public service in city of Mato Grosso do Sul/Brazil. Data were collected from November to December of 2014 and analyzed by the content analysis technique. In most families, rules are established by mother and their break leads to physical punishment. Children are described as obedient, but the dictated orders are vague or ambiguous, resulting in the absence of clear limits to be respected. We conclude that such dynamics hinder the development of emotion regulation, tolerance to opposition, resistance to frustration, and skills of negotiation and problem solving, what may influence the consumption of crack.

Keywords : crack; family relations; parenting style.
