Key Discussion Points:
a) Important to start talking with kids as early as toddler-age about what’s going on in our world, environment
b) Take advantage of the teachable moment – e.g., the cigarette butt on the ground, or seeing someone who is smoking
c) Learn with your child – go on websites, read, learn and talk together
