Smoking may be influenced by Parents

According to a new study it is observed by researchers that children who light their parents' cigarette or clean out the ashtray are likely to become smokers themselves. In addition, asking children to bring the cigarettes,// buy them at the store or light a cigarette for the parent are all behaviors that encourage children to smoke.

Rafael Laniado-Laborin, M.D., from San Diego State University, feel that when a parent asks his child to hold the match to light a cigarette, he is giving tacit approval and even encouragement for the child to smoke as well. We need to establish programs that bring this to parents' attention so they can curb this behavior.

Researchers gave a group of seventh and eighth graders in San Diego a questionnaire that asked about their parents' smoking "prompting" behaviors. The students' parents completed a similar questionnaire. Researchers compared data from 242 smoking parents and their children.

Results show only 9 percent of parents said they asked their children to clean ashtrays, but 45.2 percent of children said they were asked to complete that task. Results also show only 30.5 percent of parents asked children to bring them cigarettes, but 55.8 percent of children said their parents made that request.

The Center for Disease Control recently reported 16 percent of 13- to 16-year-olds around the world currently smoke cigarettes. In addition, the report revealed nearly 25 percent of students who smoke tried their first cigarette by age 10.
