The effects of Latino alcoholic fathers on their children’s childhood and adolescent development have largely gone unexplored in the psychological field. This paper explores the literature on alcoholism, fathers, Latinos, and childhood development in order to highlight the importance of this topic. Based on both childhood and adolescent development research, there is a suggestion that Latino paternal alcoholism negatively impacts Latino children slightly less than Whites. This finding could have numerous implications for addressing differences in development outcomes observed with Latino children of alcoholic fathers.
