According to the American Lung Association, nearly 2,500 children under the age of 18 try their first cigarette every day. More than 400 of them become new, regular daily smokers and half of them will ultimately die from their habit! So, what can we do to keep our kids tobacco free? Jennifer Hobbs Folkenroth from the American Lung Association has some ideas!
Keeping Kids Tobacco Free
- Maintain an Open Dialogue
- Prepare Kids for Peer Pressure
- Get Kids Involved in Smoke-Free Activities
- Set a Good Example
- Establish a Smoke-Free Home
