why does the state sometimes remove children from parents who are alcoholics?
Why does the state remove kids from a home where the parents are alcoholics even when there is no abuse to the child? Is it because they fear the child might become an alcoholic because they see their parents doing it to cope with life’s problems? Or is it they fear emotional abuse/neglect of the child? And why aren’t the kids allowed back sometimes even though the parents are sober and in recovery? That happened to me…

This is a pretty serious question with no concrete answer.
In my personal experience, living with an alcoholic creates an atmosphere of instability. You never know from one day to the next what state the person will be in. I think that if a child is raised in that environment they may not be getting the best care they deserve and need. An alcoholic needs to be intoxicated for whatever reason, coping, to feel normal or perhaps not to feel at all and in that case I do not beleive that a child should be exposed to that. I just dont think that it is fair to the child.
I do beleive in second chances. I think that if a person seeks treatment and has been successful for a respectable period of time then I think that based on a review of the case a child should be allowed back in the residence with the parents.
I am sorry if my opinion offends you or anyone else, but I am speaking from first hand experience, being raised in an environment where someone drank heavily.
Both my parents were alcoholics..but sadly the foster homes I was placed in were much worse. I hope I did not trigger anyone, but it just seems so unfair sometimes.
Speaking from my own experience as well…Children shouldnt have to grow up with alcoholic
