How do we help a stressed parent dissolve poor stress-management habits? My dad will drink himself to sleep when he's stressed and fill his waking hours with iphone games. The games will get his mind off work stress but only as a distraction, not alleviation of stress. Not sure how to support. We don't live under the same roof. He doesn't want to get help from a therapist and doesn't think he has a problem.

Exercise? Try some gamified exercise, it’s what I did with a friend so we could see each-other’s progress. Instead of alcohol he could consider having a melatonin tab instead, works wonders to get to sleep. The difficult part will be convincing him, frankly I was doing the same as your dad (the drinking not the gaming) and it took my doctor to tell me I had bad cholesterol and type 2 diabetes before I stopped with the bad habits.
