Tips for talking to kids about e-cigarettes/vaping
This past month we’ve had a chance to sit down with students, parents, teachers, school administrators, physicians, and lawmakers to talk about the current youth vaping epidemic. It is heart-breaking to hear them describe situations like trying to help a 12-year-old break free from nicotine addiction. It is infuriating to see how these devices, with their appealing flavors and “harmless” marketing are doing exactly as they intended: creating a new generation of nicotine addicts.
As a parent of a middle-school aged child I have taken the time to sit down and discuss with her the concerns I have with vaping and get a chance to listen to her talk about what she is seeing, and answer questions she has. As much of an “expert” as I like to think I am, I still struggled with certain things and wanted to share a few resources with you to help aid your discussions that you’ll have with your kids, grandkids, siblings, or peers.
