This article was about the effects of alcoholism in adults on adolescent children. It goes into detail about how the adolescent stages of life are hard enough with the hormone changes and exploration phase. When a child has a parent that suffers from alcoholism it may cause conflict and interruption of a ???normal??? family dynamic. (Chetana,Shanu,Mangliana, 2016)One threat to internal validity would be what is considered adolescent. There was not a specific age range listed in the study. The way the article is written, the reader is unsure if the phrase adolescents is referring to 12-17 year or a different age range. The author assumed that everyone would define adolescents the same way.A threat on external validity would be consistency. There were a lot of factors that I feel could alter the results of this study. Because age is not mention, the participants are just listed as adolescents, it leaves one to wonder does alcoholism have the same effect on a twelve-year-old as a seventeen year old? Some of the results showed that the parent had one to two drinks a day where as other participants had 7-10 drinks per day. I would be interested to know what were the ages of the parents and children.??Chetana, S.E. Shanu, Mangliana,(2016).
