SIGNS YOUR KID IS VAPING
New York City mum Meredith Berkman and two other mothers started the group Parents Against Vaping E-cigarettes (PAVe) in 2018, after learning their teenage sons were Juicing. Here are the clues they say you should look for if you suspect your child is vaping.
1 UNEXPLAINED SWEET ODOR
Kids tend to choose scented or flavored vapors that can leave a sweet odor in their room or on their clothes.
2 SECRETIVE BEHAVIOUR
They may make frequent excuses to go to the bathroom or outside to vape.
3 MOOD SWINGS
The nicotine in vaping can produce extreme anxiety, irritability or explosive anger.
4 UNFAMILIAR ELECTRONICS
Some e-cigarettes look like flash drives, and most require batteries or charging cords.
