Help your kids avoid smoking

Talk with your children about the issues and pressures around smoking, and help them develop avoidance strategies.

  • Become involved – don’t just leave it to others
  • Provide information, but not threats
  • Help kids deal with pressure to smoke, eg. to realize that it is OK to say ‘no thanks’

Tips:

Share interesting facts about where you are working or living

Get to know more about where you are working or living, and share this information with your children. History, geography, politics, or many other aspects of a location can be investigated – maybe ask your child what they would like you to find out!

Tips:

Provide a sense of security

When you put down others you diminish them rather than building them up. Make your home a 'no put down zone.'
