The aim of the current study was to test the direct and indirect influence of parents’ drinking motives and problem drinking on their children’s drinking motives, alcohol use and substance misuse. Cross-sectional analysis of parent and child drinking patterns and motives, derived from the nationally representative Drinkaware Monitor panel survey. The sample comprised a total of 148 couples of parents and child. Path analysis revealed that children’s alcohol use and substance misuse were influenced by their own drinking motives and parents’ problem drinking. Parents’ conformity motives were linked to their children’s conformity motives. Finally, parental drinking problems mediated the effect of their coping motives on their childrens’ alcohol use and substance misuse. In conclusions, parental drinking styles relate to their children’s alcohol use and substance misuse through problem drinking and drinking motives.
