What can you do if your child is vaping?
Punishment won’t necessarily lead to desired outcomes when a teen is vaping, especially because your child may already be experiencing nicotine dependence and will find it difficult to quit. Instead, try these tactics:
- Listen, and offer to help them work through the potential addiction.
- Consult with their pediatrician or family doctor.
- Help them find resources, many of which are free, personalized, and text-based. Two such programs are MyLife, My Quit and This is Quitting.
- Get free, one-on-one parent coaching through the Center on Addiction by calling 1-855-DRUGFREE or texting a question to 55753.
