Additional youth vaping education resources for parents:

The use of vaping products by youth and young adults is on the rise. To help parents have informed conversations with their children about the health risks of vaping, Fraser Health, BC Lung Association and Vancouver Coastal Health have created a package of resources and information.

You can download the Vaping Prevention Toolkit free from the BC Lung Association. The toolkit includes a Vaping Product Education for Parents Guide.

The guide includes tips on how to start conversations with youth, potential questions that parents may be asked by their child, and responses to each question.

In addition to this new toolkit, Fraser Health has online resources on these topics for parents at Fraserhealth.ca:

Vaping products
Tobacco and youth
Smoking and youth oral health
Substance use in children and youth
Cannabis
