Description

With more than five million Americans now under the age of eighteen projected to die prematurely from smoking and three thousand kids becoming addicted to tobacco products daily, parents are fighting an uphill battle to protect their children against the health risks of tobacco. Although the dangers seem obvious, more and more children are starting this deadly habit.

What can a parent do to keep their child from becoming a statistic? How to Raise Non-Smoking Kids helps parents deal with a variety of factors--from peer pressure to the advertising by tobacco companies to the images that children pick up from popular culture--that can contribute to a kid taking his first puff, including:

  • Stories and statistics on the dangers of smoking for an informed parent-child exchange
  • Guide to combating the myths and marketing of the tobacco industry
  • A timeline of smoking in American culture and how advertising has been a factor of its popularity
  • Nationwide list of anti-smoking organizations
  • Quizzes for kids on smoking and its effects to help make the facts stick

Produced in conjunction with the Nemours Foundation, one of the nation's largest repositories of children's health information, and tied into the Foundation's information-rich website, kidshealth.org, How to Raise Non-Smoking Kids will help parents make informed decisions about their children's health.
