If I happen to see my teenager smoking I would never be harsh to him, scold him or beat him up. See, as children grow up their attitudes and interests changes depending up on the type of company they are involved with.Never react intensely or storm against them. Deal them with a calm mind and make them understand the hazards of smoking. Your advice should be in such a way that what you tell is absorbed into his mind.He will definitely quit the habit."you can place an apple in your lap. But when it grows into an apple tree, is it possible?"

I wouldn't scold my son if he started smoking and also I would be double faced if I did...I'm a smoker can't say that I would be happy if he did knowing personally how hard it can be to quit...
