Like the children in Tall Tales by Karen Day, children growing up in a family with an alcoholic parent have been known to adopt one or more (the Mascot is another) of these basic family roles. Since alcoholism is a genetically-linked characteristic, it is one that many children carry. Alcohol activates this characteristic which often leads to the disease of alcoholism in genetically-prone individuals. Alcoholism is extremely difficult to overcome and often leads to nicotine addiction, drug abuse, and broken families. Tall Tales can help children to understand the risks and consequences of that first drink.
