Abstract: The article discusses psychological, social and learning difficulties faced by children who grow in families suffering from problems of alcohol addiction: lack of care, undeveloped life skills, insufficient physical and psychological safety in the family, lack of positive communication firstly in the family and later with the peers, in education institutions and others. The emphasis is laid on the fact that alhoholism of one or both parents has a negative effect on child’s psychical, physical and social development. The authors point out that the main factors influencing child’s ability to remain sound in terms of psychical and physical health embrace his/her personal qualities, relations among family members and accessibility to social assistance; schools could establish a social club, where a child could emerge in safe environment, receive pedagogical, psychological and social support, and where leisure activities would be organised; it is important to provide free of charge after-school activities in schools to develop children’s life skills.
