Vaping: What Every Parent Needs to Know

Think your teen isn’t vaping? Think again. The 2017 Pennsylvania Youth Survey found that nearly 30% of  12th graders used e-cigarettes within the last month. With e-cigarette advertising exposure largely unchecked and a common belief that e-cigarettes are “safe,” parents need information on vaping now more than ever. Breathe Pennsylvania is partnering with local schools to provide education to parents about the alarming trend of e-cigarette use. In the sessions, parents can expect to learn:

  • Terminology associated with e-cigarette use
  • How e-cigarettes work
  • What the devices look like
  • How devices may be concealed
  • Signs of nicotine withdrawal
  • How to help your child quit
