Prevent adolescent alcoholism
Sad, but on average teenagers begin to use alcohol in 14-15 years. Medical statistics says that girls and girls are starting to play alcohol, and boys are about the same. Parents often do not notice the symptoms of how alcoholism develops in their baby, because in the early stages of the disease can go unnoticed. No matter how “correct” there was a son or daughter, it’s important for each parent of the teenager to know the first symptoms of alcoholism.
WHY A SEQUENCE MAY BE OCCURRED TO ALKOHOL
More than 90% of teenage alcoholism in Ukraine takes place against the backdrop of conflicts in families and poor parenting. However, half of the adolescents who began to consume alcohol continuously grew up in well-off families, where parents focused on their careers, not on children. Often, children are beginning to try low-alcohol beverages: they are more affordable, not all sellers require a passport when buying alcohol, etc. We recall ourselves – probably each of us tried alcohol as a teenager, but he was not addicted to him.
A teenager can become an alcoholic literally in a few months, and even good children and “round” honors are not immune from it, who can thus relieve stress, try to imitate their friends or simply drink alcohol to evil parents.
FIRST SIGNS OF SEX ALCOHOLISM
Not always from an adolescent who is prone to alcohol will smell alcohol. Especially if he is late at home or is often left to stay with friends – you can not see where he is. Parents should pay attention to how their child behaves.
Yes, adolescents often behave provocatively, but with alcoholism a frequent sudden change in mood, joy and euphoria may change in a second by sadness and depression. If your child starts to behave aggressively more often in the morning, he does not remember events, then he is more likely to drink alcohol.
WHAT TO DO FAMILY, CHIE CHILD IS FIVE SPIRIT
If a teenager often smells alcohol, he has changed his behavior, then bans, punishments or humiliating “lectures” will not help – you should turn to the narcologist. It is very important to timely notice the onset of the disease and start a comprehensive therapy, since adolescent alcoholism differs from the adult, respectively, the treatment of the disease, too.
The specialist will recommend not only psychological help, if necessary – medical treatment, but also will choose the most effective in each individual case, methods of prevention of the development of alcoholism.
