Effects of Parental Addiction on Children
By Haider Ali
Once a family member becomes drug abusers, specifically parents, the unstoppable destruction gets started in entire family. Parental addition has profound impact on the physical and mental health of the children.  They are not provided proper food and education.  They are also deprived of love and security.  Additionally, they copy the addictive patterns of their parents.
In Pakistan, female children suffer a lot. No one likes to get married to a daughter of addicted father. She starts avoiding people because of feelings of shame and guilt. People do not like to do friendship with addicted family.
Children of addicted parents are compelled to do labor work, could not continue their studies. Addicted fathers beat their children, abuse them and sometimes, are willing to sell their children for getting money. In later life, these children have difficulty in adjusting in their environment because of numerous problems.  Moreover, there are more chances to develop negative behaviors and to be engaged in wrong activities.
