Lasinen lapsuus (Fragile Childhood) is a Finnish non-profit launched in 1985 to help encourage parents to take responsibility and understand how their drinking habits affect their children. The organization notes that previous research has shown that 1 in 4 children have suffered harm because of their parent’s alcohol issues.
