Talking to Teens about Vaping
In order to start a conversation with a teen about vaping, whether you are a peer or an adult, it is important to understand where they are coming from. Ask them questions, listen to their answers, and respond accordingly. You can find a more in-depth guide on our Distance Learning Activity page.
