Barnardos. (2014). Translating Evidence to Practice: The Impact of Drug & Alcohol Misuse on Parenting Capacity. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/917
Parents play a pivotal role in providing a safe
and developmentally-appropriate environment
for their children. As children grow and develop,
a parent needs to be flexible in order to respond
to the changing needs of their child. They need an
awareness of what is happening in the world around
them and the impact of this on their child. While
parental misuse of drugs and/or alcohol alone does
not predict parenting capacity, it may indicate that
a family is at an increased risk of having parenting
capacity compromised and this, in turn, will have
negative implications for the children in their care.
