Teenagers across the United States are turning towards a scary new trend called juuling.
So what should you do if you suspect your teen or their friends may be juuling? The Surgeon General recommends parents:
Find the right moment. Rather than saying “we need to talk,” wait for a more natural moment, such as witnessing someone using an e-cigarette. Ask your teen what they think about the situation.
Be patient and ready to listen. Avoid criticism and encourage an open dialogue.
Be prepared to answer questions. Know the facts, and use credible information to answer any questions your teen may have.
Set a positive example. If you expect your teen to be tobacco-free, you should refrain from tobacco use of any kind as well.
