This question was inspired by a question about pregnancy and exposure to the second hand products of the smoking device known as e cigarettes.
My child has a "friend" we work with at the theater that is a teenager (17) who has taken up smoking e-cigarettes. He does it because he considers them safe, he can practice blowing smoke rings (like Gandalf) and its the "latest and greatest" in being cool and new.
His mom cares, but figures the boy is too old to be able to make an issue of it since he is almost officially an adult, but he does live with her still.
So, while it isn't currently an "issue" for my household, I am curious what others would do. What persuasive information is there one way or the other that could be used with a teen and would it be wise to "lay down the law" about something like this in such a case as this?
