It is up to the parents to properly educate and nurture their children on the harmful and hazardous effect smoking can have.

Similarly to consuming healthy food and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Be a living example to the ones you love most on this earth, because you wouldn’t want your child to pick up smoking and harm his health caused by your actions.
Educate and talk to your children while they are still young. You can begin to explain how your body, heart and lungs functions. Input a mental image of black lungs and negative effects into your child’s mind. Instead of letting your children watch TV at their free will, criticize actors and actress who smoke and blame them for being a bad influence and do this in front of your kids.
Further explain to your children how smoking deprives the blood flow, take away the radiance of skin and face and how it will drain the energy of a person.
Be involved with your child activities. Teach your child to look at things positively in life. Encourage them to lead a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating healthy food. You should not pamper your child. Let them know what’s right and wrong because they won’t know it without guidance.
