She decides and plans for the childcare for the children when they travel, she does the packing, and she even has to pick out all of mr. potts’s clothing.

*ASSIGNMENT* Given the information that you have learned about the Potts family as stated in the scenario in the Week 2 Discussion Board as well as your knowledge of how alcoholism affects children, do the following: – How would you interpret the effect that Mr. Potts’s alcohol abuse has had on his children and his relationship with the children? – How would you describe which role each Potts family member plays (e.g., scapegoat, caretaker, lost child, comic, and so on)? – Using a theoretical perspective, illustrate how alcohol use and abuse contributes to the roles that each family member plays. – Based on your knowledge of alcoholism, predict whether either child or both are at risk to develop an alcohol-related drinking problem and why. **BACK STORY OF MR. POTTS AND FAMILY** Since your last meeting with Mr. Potts, you have learned that because he is home so infrequently, he does not spend much quality time sober with his children. He recently missed their dance recital and their dance competitions. The girls excel at dance and have won numerous awards, none of which Mr. Potts has been around for. Mr. Potts has never missed work because of drinking, although you have learned that he sleeps only 4–5 hours per night and is typically hung over the next day after being out drinking the night before. He has very little patience, chain smokes, and has many regrets in his life (although drinking is not yet one of them). When asked about his children, he appears to know very little about them. He is unable to tell you who each child’s best friend is, what each child’s favorite color is, what television shows they like to watch, what music interests them, or what foods they like to eat. He cannot recall ever doing any activity with either of them, whether individually or together. He is not sure of their schedule, and he has never been to a school parent–teacher conference or any doctor or dentist appointments. However, he is very vocal in his expectation that his children excel in school and get all As. He did disclose that he reviews their report cards to be sure that they are getting all As. Mr. and Mrs. Potts travel frequently as a couple with different retail groups, and these trips are paid for by the manufacturers of the furniture that Mr. Potts carries in his stores. The children do not come on these trips. There are about two per year, each lasting for 1 week. When asked about these trips during an interview, Mrs. Potts’s face elongates, and she looks down. She is very guarded in her responses to you as the probation officer. You learn that these trips are a source of great stress for Mrs. Potts because all decisions are left up to her. She decides and plans for the childcare for the children when they travel, she does the packing, and she even has to pick out all of Mr. Potts’s clothing. During these trips, Mr. Potts is intoxicated most of the time except the mornings, and Mrs. Potts is left to deal with his intoxication, embarrassing behavior, and other antics. Mr. Potts has a heart condition and has suffered from three heart attacks in the past 6 years. In addition, he had triple bypass surgery 18 months ago. He takes numerous medications for his heart condition. The doctors have clearly articulated to him that they believe that his years of heavy drinking have impacted the functioning of his heart. They have advised him explicitly that Mr. Potts must stop drinking if he wants to live. Despite this medical advice and his failing heart, he continues to drink and smoke excessively. His wife and children have spent numerous days and nights at the hospital while he recovered from his surgery and heart attacks. Sarah, the 13-year-old daughter, dotes on her father whenever she has the opportunity. She sympathizes with him, gets him beers out of the refrigerator when he is home drinking, and is always trying to take the stress away from the family caused by Mr. Potts’s drinking. Cindy, the 11-year-old daughter, is an angry child. She lashes out verbally and behaviorally at both her parents. Her parents do not know it, but she has recently began self-mutilating behaviors in the form of cutting her forearms, writing the words help me with a knife. **MY INTERPRETATION ON MR. POTTS FAMILY (WEEK 2 DISCUSSION)** Mr. Potts’s condition has had a variety of different effects on the manner in which he interacts with his children and his wife. First, due to his long and frequent absences from the house, he has been unable to attend major occasions in the lives of his children, such as their performances in dancing contests and recitals. Mr. Potts plays no part at all in his children’s lives. It is not a stretch to say that this has been a source of aggravation and disappointment for his wife and their children. Second, because of his condition, Mr. Potts has had to spend a large amount of time in the hospital, which has forced him to be away from his family for a good portion of that time. Because of this, Mrs. Potts has undoubtedly been under a great deal of pressure, since she has been required to run the home and take care of the children all by herself at these times. Even on vacation, which is supposed to be a time to unwind, Mrs. Potts feels pressured and overwhelmed. She is expected to manage all household responsibilities in addition to handling Mr. Pott’s embarrassment while they are away. In addition, the condition of Mr. Potts has caused the family to suffer a monetary loss as a result of the considerable amount of medical expenses that have been incurred as a result of his treatment. If Mr. Potts keeps downing alcoholic beverages, it is quite probable that his health may deteriorate even worse in the future. His condition could lead to his demise. This is due to the fact that drinking alcohol may make preexisting cardiac disorders worse, in addition to contributing to other health issues such as liver damage. In addition, Mr. Potts’s prescriptions may be affected if he continued to drink alcohol since several drugs for the heart cannot be taken simultaneously with alcohol. The drinking that Mr. Potts does might have a variety of effects on the drugs he takes for his heart condition. To begin, drinking alcohol while taking some cardiac drugs might cause the treatments to be less effective. Additionally, drinking alcohol may make existing cardiac issues worse, which may result in an increased need for treatment with medicines. Last but not least, drinking alcohol while taking certain cardiac medicines may not be safe, which means that Mr. Potts is putting his health in considerable jeopardy. Grading Criteria Provided a comprehensive list of elements that describe alcoholism in the case study. 25 Listed examples and explained how genetics and heredity impact future alcohol abuse. 25 Demonstrated an understanding of the Continuum of Use with alcohol as the primary substance using the case study as an example. 30 Provided some insight as to how the history of alcohol use may have contributed to the condition in this case study. 35 Professional Language: Assignment contains accurate grammar, spelling, and/or punctuation with few or no errors.
