Parent Tip Sheet for Talking to Teens about Vaping

You can talk to your children or other young people you know about the dangers of e-cigarettes. Tell them about the harm that nicotine in any form can do to their growing brain. Let them know that you have a strong stance against them using any tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, now or in the future. Even if you have used tobacco yourself, they will listen if you discuss your struggles with nicotine addiction.
Sometimes adults need help to start the conversation about health topics they're not familiar with, like e-cigarettes. The Parent Tip Sheet offers ideas for conversation starters, if you need a little help. Print it for yourself or share it with your children. Ask them what they think after reading the tip sheet.
