Kids Smoking Cigarettes-We Need To Keep Them Safe
Kids Need To Not Smoke
If you are a parent in the 21st century by now you must have it figured out that you are the one that is fully responsible when it comes to keeping your kids safe. We can talk about all kinds of safety but today I want to talk about the safety of making sure you kids do not smoke. If you do find out about that first cigarette then you need to do everything in your power to make sure they don't light that second one. It is a deadly habit that we want to keep our kids away from.
Kids smoking cigarettes are something we need to try and avoid the best we can. Sometimes it may even mean using scare tactics and that has to be okay. A couple of factors do need to come into play. We need to focus on educating our kids and the other thing is us as parents bring our kids up properly. A lot of the time those two factors will be all that is needed to keep kids from smoking.
When we talk about kids smoking cigarettes I have no problem
There are many factors when it comes to keeping kids safe and all others can be left to the other experts. In my case I want to do everything to educate kids into never smoking. I want to teach kids what a black lung looks like. I want children to see what cancer does to the person suffering and the people around them.
Why do we even care about worrying about social studies in school but yet we do very little to educate our children when it comes to smoking. I guess for the most part all the responsibility needs to lie in our laps. As a parent it is our responsibility to fight against our kids smoking.
The tobacco companies would never admit to anything but anyone with common sense knows and realizes that tobacco companies very heavily rely on new smokers starting up to maintain billions of dollars in profits. Of course we cant win single handily against the tobacco companies but as a team and each and every one of us focus on taking care of the people around us then we can actually win this war.
We have to understand the importance of keeping kids safe in all circumstances. We do everything in our power and we would die for our kids but then we see kids on a daily basis with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths. Why do we not take smoking as seriously as the stalker on the internet trying to date your 15 year old daughter.
Bottom line is smoking kills and if you dont already know this you have been buried at the bottom of an ocean for a very long time. There are no more excuses life is about keeping kids safe.
Smoking is bad in so many ways and thats the way it is. Its the way things need to be. All you need to do is make sure you have a journey to quit smoking.

I had no clue my breath was so bad as a smoker. When my wife told me that I no longer had bad breath it just felt like I took another step forward. We really have no clue how much negatives come out of being a smoker.
