What price do kids pay when parents or guardians drink too much? We know that bad things happen when a parent or guardian drinks too much, and any price or pain is too much. But now we’ve got proof: A new national study showed that 7.4 percent of surveyed respondents reported that children in their care experienced harm as a result of someone else’s drinking. That’s whole lot higher than the previous studies in the U.S. which found general child maltreatment rates of about 1 to 2 percent. How, exactly, are kids hurt by alcohol abuse in their homes?
