Passive smoking...

How would you handle this?

So far my 6 year old used to say I will become this, I will become that when I grow up. Today he said - "मैं बड़ा होके smoking करूँगा!" (Means: I will do smoking when I grow up!!!!)

Out goes our reply with a long listing of our entire family tree trying to make a point that no one smokes because its not good (for health)... Added with some lecture on smoking hazards...

Comes another statement - "But friend's grandpa smokes..."

Discussion closed - No, its not a good thing to do... Think about doing something else... so many better (cooler) things to do...

I am sure so many people would have thought about this for themselves when they were kids, but its always like "reinventing the wheel" when you become a parent and see your own kid going thru the same cycle; and trying to save them from what's not good and encourage them to take up what's good...

PS: Cigarette smoking is injurious for one's health... Actually not only for smoker's health but its injurious for passive smokers and the potential smokers as well...

Nice observation !!
Kids these days are smarter than what me and you can imagine!! they observe a lot of things and make their own inferences about them.
As parents, we can only guide them about what is right and what is not and expect that they make the right decisions.
