LifeChanges's insight:

This story is just one of many shocking news stories illustrating the seriousness of smoking at a yonug age. If children as young as twelve are easily finding ways to be supplied with cigarettes then the suppliers need to be targetted. Late teens need to be given the knowledge to understand what they are doing and the effect they could potentially have on a twelve year olds life. They need to appreciate the concept of role models and also their duty as a senior member of the school; they should be acting as an older sibling not a drug dealer.

New motherhood is often thought of as a time of bliss, with mother and baby quickly forming a joyful bond.
LifeChanges's insight:

14% is a large number, clearly postpartum depression is common and understandable. Mothers have to adapt so quickly to their babies needs. I dont think your strength of character before having a child will contribute to the probability of being diagnosed with depression. Its all about adaptation and how quickly you can adapt. Another dependent is if the mother wanted a child, this may contribute to the overwhelming feeling that you are not in control and your life changes are too significant to adapt to.
