Often parents face such a situation when they learn that their teenager has started to smoke.
Naturally, this news is not encouraging, and many moms and dads use various methods of threats and prohibitions, without understanding the reason why he started smoking.
The most common of these is the demonstration of independence before peers.
In addition, an important factor is their own example, and if parents smoke, the chances that children will start smoking significantly increase, especially since cigarettes are constantly in sight. Children always have great curiosity, so they personally want to try something that is constantly shown in films where, for example, their favorite characters use alcohol and smoke.
The earlier you start explaining to your child about how much it hurts your health, the sooner it will give up this addiction. Try to give him as much time as possible, going on camping trips, for a walk, and also involve in doing homework.
