Here are just a few facts from http://www.nacoa.net/pdfs/addicted.pdf stating how a parent’s drinking can affect a student’s education:
In general, children of alcoholic parents do less well on academic measures. They also have higher rates of school absenteeism and are more likely to leave school, be retained, or be referred to the school psychologist than are children of nonalcoholic parents.
Children of addicted parents exhibit symptoms of depression and anxiety more than do children from non-addicted families.
Research on behavioral problems demonstrated by children of alcoholics has revealed some of the following traits: lack of empathy for other persons; decreased social adequacy and interpersonal adaptability; low self-esteem; and lack of control over the environment.
