Natasha Lee's insight:

I think the best way to prevent youth smoking is to provide them with the best environment when they are young. However, if they have already start smoking, parents can give them more attention and guide them through their hard period of time.

Why Teens Smoke | Health Information | Alberta Health Services

Teens smoke for many reasons and often for the same reasons as adults do: to cope with stress, to control their weight, as a social habit and to combat boredom.
Natasha Lee's insight:

Youths smoke because their friends and family do it and they think it's cool if they smoke. Which is not. I think smoking is a waste of money and time. In addition, smoking causes serious health problems which needs to be treated and since they spent all their money on cigarettes they might not have enough money to treat their problems.

Natasha Lee's insight:

There is an  increase to the number of youths smoking in Singapore and they do it in the form of rebellion. This is partly because their parents did not disapline them when their children are young. I'm not saying that it is the parent's fault but sometimes these children smoke to gain attention from their parents.
