Abstract

This review examines three ways in which parental tobacco and alcohol use compromises the physical and mental health of children: 1) direct exposure to the substances; 2) living with parents who may become ill from using these substances; and 3) children's modeling of parental substance use. Implications for prevention, intervention, and public education are discussed, and a reframing of the national dialogue on youth substance abuse is called for.
