Smoking Parents Lead to Smoking Children

Filed under: Parenting 101 — admin @ 12:01 am

My daughter talked to me, with a rather mixed feeling, of one of her classmates. That girl told my daughter, “Both of my parents smoke and I have been second-hand smoker since I was born. I will smoke, too. It makes no difference.”

It reminds me of a lung cancer patient who quit smoking after this diagnosis. He complained of his son who was chain-smoking inside the house and made him cough non-stop. I thought the boy was just like his dad when the dad was young. And that’s how the boy learned to smoke like a chimney.

Both examples powerfully emphasize once again the crucial role of the parents in the health and behavior of their children. Once again, parents, behave yourself for your children.
