How to Talk to Your Kids about Smoking

Video taken from the channel: Howcast

The best ways to prevent your children from smoking are to: Encourage your children to get involved in activities that prohibit smoking, including sports. Keep talking to your children about the dangers of smoking. If friends or relatives have died from tobacco-related Ask your children what they.

Tips for Talking to Kids About Smoking Smoking is glamorized in movies, television shows and online, but parents are the most important influences in their children’s lives. Tell your children honestly and directly that you don’t want them to smoke cigarettes, use e-cigarettes (e.g., “vaping” and “juuling”) or use any type of tobacco product. Children as young as 5 or 6 years old benefit from hearing about the harmful effects of cigarette smoke. Start by saying most children don’t smoke (so they know it’s not normal), and then keep repeating the same message about the downsides of cigarettes as they reach their teens.

Set Ground Rules and Rewards. Anti-Smoking Tips. High levels of communication about smoking can result in lower rates of smoking among teens.Take the initiative to start conversations with your child about smoking, display empathy and give your child space—all factors that play a role in whether your child. Kids will also pay attention to the negative effects that smoking has on sports performance, and even playtime.

Tell your kids that smoking will slow down how fast they can run or how long. Teach your child how to say no. If your child can learn from an early age to assert her views confidently, she’ll be better able to withstand the peer pressure of the preteen and teen years, when smoking becomes more common. Listen to her when she states her opinions, and when you disagree with her, do so respectfully.

Very early on, children get the message that smoking is dangerous. Smoking is banned in most public places, many people don’t allow smoking in their homes, and smoking, in general, is less common than it used to be. Young children who aren’t around cigarette smoke regularly also tend to think it smells “yucky.”. So the researchers developed the Family Talk about Smoking paradigm, or FTAS, a method of standardizing the interaction and communication between teen smokers and their parents who had either.

For example: Parents can set a good example for their kids by not using tobacco and keeping their homes tobacco-free. Schools can provide tobacco intervention programs (such as INDEPTH) to educate students about the dangers of tobacco and tobacco cessation programs to help young people. It is a good idea to start talking with your children about the dangers of cigarettes when they are 5 or 6 years old. Keep the conversation going as your children get older.

Make it a two-way talk. Give your children a chance to speak openly, particularly as they get older.

  • My parents are both heavy smokers and was when I was a kid. They explained how bad for health it is and when start will never be able to quit. As a kid I could see that they enjoyed it, liked how it looked and smelt. Started still and understood that bad for health. Still smoke, partner and family all do too, love it!

  • I have spent months researching into quitting smoking and discovered a great resource at Quit Smoking Crusher (check it out on google)

  • BAN all the chemical additives added to cigarettes, and while we’re at it, lift the embargo with Cuba.  Problem solved.  Smoking pure tobacco won’t kill or addict you.

  • i do not like this at all why would you smoke if you no someone in ur family that smoking and they died then u surely will not do it

  • Ridicoulus. It a shame make this video. Deep state put in our throat sigarets for ten decade and now you show me this fucking video? Go to farm and cigarettes producers and burned their fucking gold.

  • Everyone is hating on the blonde girl, but to be honest I was like that as a kid, and now I’m completely open to drugs. I think it was more of a reaction to the fact that her mother, who she thought of as a role model, could be “reckless”, and not as much about the actual drugs.

  • Kids will not switch from vaping to smoking cigarettes. That’s a complete lie. Nice try though.

    But yes, vaping is dangerous. I vaped only Juul for 4 years and I had to remove part of my right lung. If you don’t believe me, keep vaping and experience it for yourselves.

  • Smoking weed saved my life. I had no sex drive as a 21 year old guy and I felt shit all the time. Now I smoke a joint every couple days and I feel normal, horny and healthy. People need to be educated that weed (cbd) has incredible powers and is not all evil! But I will say that certain types of weed can make you very lazy and if you get bonkers high, which is fun, it can effect short term memory for a small period (couple days) Education!!!!

  • Just noticed The girl in white was the girl who took 100 tokes in the 100 ways to hit a bong, legend has it she’s still high in this video from that one

  • I’m gonna be fr I’m 13 turning 14 and I smoke cigarettes. I quit smoking everyday because of this video but I still do smoke every few days or sometimes weeks so I’m getting better. It also helps I converted from satanism to Christianity and it says in the bible that smoking is a sin so I’m really trying to quit now. I first smoked a cigarette at my friends house bc I wanted to try it and look cool. Then I started stealing cigarettes from friends parents. Then I started stealing them from family. It’s not a joke. Another way I’m trying to quit is vaping. It does disappoint and make me sad how people just juul and vape for fun. Like it’s your body and your life you do what you want and makes you happy I just don’t want other kids and teens to end up like me.

  • I personally think that parents should never tell their kid that they do drugs. Acceptable is when they tell them they try it but it was horrible and they should never do it. Otherwise the kid would like to do what his/hers parents do.

  • All the comments about the little blonde kid are so mean. She is just a kid and her view of drugs probably come from a variety of different experiences. What matters is she seems to have a really kind and non-judgemental mom. <3

  • I feel sad for the people in the comments smoking or vaping is probably so addicting that you cant even focus at school and all the kids is even worse why even start your life was fine when you didn’t smoke or vape I hate nicotine it’s just there so you can but more packs and they make even more money I’m glad I don’t vape to look cool

  • I’m 10 and I took a inhale of my sister’s Epen. I started shaking and acting crazy. I regret that stupid thing I did.. DON’T DO THEM!

  • I wish someone had talked to the kids when they were explaining and made the comparison to alcohol. It’s not the same but it might have helped some of them understand the concept of a drug that is safe in moderation for adults, as most children are familiar with alcohol being something adults can safely do, though they may not realize it’s considered a drug.

  • i was just like that blond girl and now im going into hs and im like ok no hard drugs but im definitely gonna smoke weed at least once no point in condemning it

  • You guys being mean to the blonde girl, I bet lots of you were fucking annoying when you were a kid. She hasn’t even experienced anything at all to learn from and be her true self. Stop deciding what she’s gonna be like when all she is, is just a kid. Ik it’s annoying but I really hope she doesn’t read any of it.

  • i think drug needs a new definition. Or we need to teach kids that MOST drugs aren’t harmful. You have all these perscriptions on top of weed
