This is me and my family having a really good time.<br />
We like doing family things.<br />
We also have lots of friends.<br />
This is my Dad. He drinks a lot of beer.<br />
He can be great fun and he makes us laugh!<br />
Sometimes he goes out to the pub for a drink.<br />
Other times he drinks at home.<br />
He gets a sore head from drinking too much beer and sleeps a lot.<br />
He shouts at us if we make too much noise.<br />
Mum worries about dad all the time.<br />
He knows that drinking too much is not good for you.<br />
If he’s not drinking, he’s thinking about drinking.<br />.<br />
Even when we do fun family stuff.<br />
Sometimes he says things he doesn't mean when he's been drinking.<br />
One time he was arrested by the police for fighting in the street.<br />
Other times he embarrasses me and my Mum.<br />
Some times he gets angry and scares me and my family.<br />
Other times I feel like the adult and have to take care of him when he's drunk.<br />
The next day, he says he can’t remember what he said or done.<br />
He always says he's sorry and feels bad.<br />
If this happens to you, you are not alone!3.4 million children in the UK live with similar problems at home. <br />
Some children worry so much about what’s going on at home that they forget to have FUN.<br />
