Quitting Smoking Can Be a Parent's Best New Year's Resolution
Date:12/16/2008

hing of the past," said David Tayloe, MD, President of the AAP. "Parents Quit for Good will help make it easier for every clinician to help reach every tobacco user and to help parents quit smoking."

Secondhand smoke is one very important reason for parents to quit, but it is also important to note that kids whose parents smoke are twice as likely to light up themselves when they get older. No parent wants their child to grow up to be a smoker, so the campaign offers Ten Things Parents Can Do to Prevent Their Children From Smoking:

1. Be a role model. Let your kids know you're committed to quitting and need their support.

2. Designate your house as a smoke-free zone.

3. Keep trying to quit. (Please visit www.BecomeAnEX.org for tips on quitting, including how you can re-learn your life without cigarettes.)

4. Don't smoke around your children, even in the car.

5. Educate your children to be savvy consumers of media.

6. Inform your children about the health risks associated with smoking.

7. Know your children's friends and whether smoking takes place in their social circle.

8. Listen carefully to your children and be a sounding board for them.

9. Build skills early on to keep your kids from smoking.

10. If they start to smoke, encourage them in their attempts to quit.
