London: Kids often emulate their mother, not father, when it comes to drinking habits in adulthood, says a landmark study.Children are more likely to see their mothers drink than their fathers, who do most of their drinking outside the home, the researcher said.Demos, the think-tank, tracked the drinking patterns of 18,000 people over three decades.Jonathan Birdwell, head of Demos` Citizens` Programme said: "What we found really interesting was this delayed effect; the impact of what teenagers perceived about their mothers` drinking habits doesn`t show an impact at the time, but decades later."The study found that at 16 years, teens were mainly influenced by their peers in how much they drank, while their parents` attitudes towards alcohol appeared to show little impact.
