This new campaign from Finland promotes discussion about parental alcohol use
Sauna International director Mikko was recently tasked with bringing a new campaign, titled ‘Fragile Childhood’, for The A-Clinic Foundation to life.
Finland has a long history of family problems caused by parental alcohol consumption. It is a very controversial and current topic in Finland with a regular stream of cases being reported in the media and the involvement of all political parties in discussing the issue. “Tragic cases bring home the importance of the child’s point of view,” says Fragile Childhood’s Project Coordinator Janne Takala.
Every adult should consider their own alcohol usage and of the consequences of drinking around children. Research carried out in 2011 among Finnish teenagers aged 12-18 years shows that children think that their parents ought not to drink at home and that they are much nicer without alcohol.
Emotive campaign film asks a challenging question
“Fragile Childhood activities examine the use of alcohol from a child´s point of view. Every adult who drinks in the company of a child will not only set an example for a child but also influence how safe the child will feel at home,” says Finland´s Social and Health Minister Paula Risikko.
On 12th September Fragile Childhood published a new film called 'Monsters' to continue to raise awareness of parental alcohol abuse and promote the responsible use of alcohol in society.
Comment anonymously about the issue
Fragile Childhood activities are designed to encourage people to participate anonymously in discussion and to share their thoughts about responsible parental drinking on a dedicated platform: Facebook / Fragile Childhood.
The campaign activities are also to highlight the fact that is still not widely understood how much harm parental drinking problems causes to children. For example, previous research has shown that every fourth Finnish child has suffered some harm because of its parent’s alcohol usage.
