| When it comes to relating
to kids, every parent is sure to be frustrated at times.
Too often, our kids feel that we, as adults, simply don’t
understand the world they live in and the pressures they
face. By getting to know some of the reasons they may
try smoking, we can show our sons and daughters that we
do understand what they’re going through and where
they’re coming from. This kind of understanding
can lead to a stronger environment of communication.
Some reasons why kids may light up include:
- To fit in, be part of a group
- To look cool
- To experiment, just try it out
- They have a friend or friends who smoke
- To be rebellious
- To look older
