"I Feel It In My Heart When My Parents Fight": Experiences of 7-9-Year-Old Children of Alcoholics

About the Course:

This study explored the consequences for a child of having an alcoholic parent, from the point of view of 7–9-year-old COA. In the analysis, using qualitative content analysis, the findings show that the children of this young age had many experiences and took a great deal of responsibility for their alcoholic parent, and the family. The most significant feeling of the children was a feeling of sadness. Implications include the importance of listening to and supporting all COA, including children as young as 7–9 years old. Further studies should address the support that can and should be offered to COA.
