Children of depressed mothers are at high risk for developing serious psychiatric disorders. While genetics can account for about 34% of cases of childhood psychiatric disorders, children of depressed parents are at an even greater risk of developing mental disorders. The Keeping Families Strong program, or KFS, was built from evidence-based prevention programs. Its goal is to provide educational, cognitive, and behavioral interventions. These interventions are meant to enhance understanding about depression and its effects on families, improve communication within families, enhance social support, increase positive and consistent parenting, and improve child coping. This will likely improve the childrens mental health, as well as positively affect the short- and long-term outcomes of parents recovering from a depressive episode. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of the KFS program in avoiding or delaying the onset of psychiatric disorders among children with depressed ...
Parental depression is a strong and consistent risk factor for offspring MDD and anxiety disorder. Without parental depression, offspring have less exposure to family discord and lower rates of psychopathology. In the presence of family discord, rates of MDD, anxiety disorder and substance use disor …
My father turned to alcohol to numb his feelings. After growing with a parent struggling with addiction, I decided to break the cycle of pain.
Alcoholism causes anguish not only for the person who drinks, but for everyone who is involved with that person. But there are things you can do to help cope with the problems alcoholism creates in families.

I totally understand and empathize. I worry all the time about what Ive passed on to my munchkin. I suspect even (relatively) healthy parents worry about passing on genes for things that have plagued them, but I think its one of those horribly painful parts of being a parent whos chronically ill. Like we dont feel guilty enough for the other ways our illness impacts our kid(s ...
BACKGROUND Offspring of individuals with alcoholism are at increased risk for psychiatric illness, but the effects of gender on this risk are not well known. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the gender of the parent with alcoholism and the gender of offspring affect the association between parental alcoholism and offspring psychiatric illness. METHOD We analyzed the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC) data to examine the gender-specific prevalence of axis I and axis II disorders in 23,006 male and 17,368 female respondents with and without a history of paternal or maternal alcoholism. Adjusted odds ratios were calculated for the disorders based on gender and presence of maternal or paternal alcoholism. RESULTS Maternal or paternal alcoholism was associated with a higher prevalence of every disorder examined, regardless of the gender of offspring. Gender-related differences in prevalences were present in nearly all examined disorders, and the
An accumulating body of evidence suggests that offspring of mothers with preeclampsia have higher blood pressure during childhood and young adulthood compared with women without preeclampsia. However, the evidence with regard to offspring glucose metabolism and lipids is more scant. We examined whether maternal hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (preeclampsia and gestational hypertension) are associated with a range of cardiometabolic health measures in adolescent offspring. We included data for mother-offspring pairs from a United Kingdom prospective birth cohort (the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children). Repeat antenatal clinic measures of blood pressure and proteinuria (median 14 and 11, respectively) were used to ascertain maternal preeclampsia (n=53) and gestational hypertension (n=431). Offspring had blood pressure (n=4438), and fasting lipids, insulin, and glucose (n=2888) measured at a mean age of 17 years. There was no strong evidence of differences in fasting insulin, ...

Adult Children of Addicted/Alcoholic Parents - Feelings, thoughts, experiences- and assumptions from the childhood affect all of us, throughout life.
OBJECTIVE: Intrauterine exposure to maternal type 1 diabetes is associated with a less favorable metabolic profile later in life. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is the hepatic manifestation of a cluster of metabolic abnormalities linked to insulin resistance. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of maternal pregestational type 1 diabetes on the presence of fatty liver in offspring and the association between maternal BMI, glycemic control during pregnancy, offspring metabolic risk factors, and offspring level of soluble CD163 (sCD163; a marker of macrophage activation) and risk of fatty liver.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This study was a prospective nationwide follow-up study of offspring (n = 278) of mothers with pregestational type 1 diabetes between 1993 and 1999 and matched control subjects (n = 303). Mean age at the time of follow-up was 16.7 years (range 13.0-20.4 years). We used the fatty liver index (FLI) and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) to evaluate the presence of fatty liver ...
The plight of the children of alcoholics is now receiving increasing attention in both the scientific and general press. Most of this literature reports on studies that attempt to spell out specific problems in the childhood formative years that result from having an alcoholic parent. The bulk of those studies have been retrospective in nature. For the most part they deal with incidence rates (e.g. 50% of abused children or 50% of delinquent children come from alcoholic homes) and avoid direct cause and effect statements, except in two important areas. Causal relationships are being fairly well demonstrated in those studies dealing with fetal, newborn, and early childhood anomalies attributed to alcoholism in the mother (Jones, Smith, and Streissguth, 1974; Smith, 1977; Streissguth, 1976). Some authors (Goodwin, Schulsinger, Hermansen, Guze, & Winokur, 1975; Cantwell, 1972; Morrison & Stewart, 1973) have also reported a cause/effect relationship in some cases of childhood behavior and psychomotor

A new study has said that adolescent brains may respond differently during risky decision-making situations if the teens have a family history of alcoholism.
Two areas of the brain - the prefrontal cortex and cerebellum - responded differently in nondrinking youth with a family history of alcoholism during risky decision-making, a new study shows.
These results show that having at least one depressed parent can put an individual at risk over the course of their lifetime for a variety of mental as well as physical health conditions. It is important that doctors, especially general practitioners who often act as the frontline, to be aware of their patients family mental health history. With this information both doctor and patient can be more aware of potential risks. Early detection can save untold hardships as well as real monetary expenses. This news should not come as a burden to anyone with a family history checkered with depression or other mental health issues, but instead should serve as a tool to help them better live their own lives ...

I find it interesting that you consider substance abuse a "dubious malady" and note that its treatment is "anathema to the business community." Why is that? The fact that you can even write a sentence like that should give all the "parity proponents" enough validation to keep on fighting.. Apparently you feel like substance abuse is not a biologically-based "real illness." Are you aware of the significance of genetic predisposition in substance abuse? Children of alcoholic parents are four times more likely to become alcoholic themselves. Furthermore, there is a high degree of concurrence between substance abuse and mental illness (particularly bipolar disorder). What does it say about us as a society that we somehow want to blame people for their mental illness?. We stigmatize mental illness (and I will include substance abuse in this as well) by the mere fact that we carve it out separately from every other illness. Why do we have a separate mental health services phone number on our ...

Also, Ive spent enough time in less developed nations to know the difference between seriously infectious grub and whaddaya know, we live in a biosphere grub. ...

This paper examines the determinants of intergenerational transfers and the association between such transfers and the intergenerational transmission of poverty, based on a new longitudinal dataset from Bangladesh. Women receive less schooling, land and inherited assets than men, and also give up their inheritance to their brothers in exchange for economic and social support. While intergenerationally transferred assets, mostly controlled by the husband, increase levels of current assets and consumption, only husbands schooling and inherited land, as well as womens social networks, are protective against chronic poverty. ...

Experts emphasize routines as a paramount practice in successful child rearing (Fiese, 2002). Only recently, however, has empirical evidence begun to corroborate this theory. While many researchers and clinicians have documented the use of daily child routines in their parenting packages and treatment studies, none has measured the effects of child routines directly. The emergence of The Child Routines Questionnaire offered ample evidence of the importance of child routines in school-age children. Significant findings link a lack of routines to child behavior problems, poor parenting practices, and parental psychopathology (Sytsma et al., 2001; Sytsma-Jordan, Kelley, & Henderson, 2002; Jordan, 2003). These data have offered insightful correlation between routines and overall child adjustment, and parental well-being. The present study aimed to contribute to this literature by extending the CRQ to children ages one to five years through development and validation of the Child Routines Questionnaire:

Parents with higher education levels have children with higher education levels. However, is this because parental education actually changes the outcomes of children, suggesting an important spillover of education policies, or is it merely that more able individuals who have higher education also have more able children? This paper proposes to answer this question by using a unique dataset from Norway. Using the reform of the education system that was implemented in different municipalities at different times in the 1960s as an instrument for parental education, we find little evidence of a causal relationship between parents education and childrens education, despite significant OLS relationships. We find 2SLS estimates that are consistently lower than the OLS estimates with the only statistically significant effect being a positive relationship between mothers education and sons education. These findings suggest that the high correlations between parentsand childrens education are due ...
There are many reasons and factors as to why a person starts to use drugs and become addicted to it. There are physiological, social, biological, and psychological factors to consider in every case. Some or all of these factors can play a significant role in why a person starts to abuse a substance. If an individuals family uses drugs, then he or she is more vulnerable to pick up the habit as well. As for social factors, a common example of a reason why people get into drugs is peer pressure. In addition to all these, once an individual starts to use drugs heavily, there are physiological changes that happen and this is when he or she becomes physically dependent on the drug. Once addicted to the substance, a person feels the need to continually use the drug so that they wont fall ill because of the withdrawal symptoms. With alcohol use disorder, there is a trend that alcoholism usually runs in the family. However, not all of the children of an alcoholic parent would automatically become one ...
Idyllic as it seems in this scene, Martin doesnt candy-coat the season. The problems of real life are just below the surface of this magical moment. Friend Nikkis alcoholic parents cant provide a real Christmas for their family, especially for six-year-old Mae, whose Christmas wishes are filled because Flora and Ruby and their neighbors stage a visit from a faux Santa to deliver all the presents on her list.
