How can I tell if a child is vaping?

Do you notice artificial smells from behind closed doors like candy, popcorn, vanilla, or fruit flavoring?

  • Are there school supplies or tech products you do not recognize in kids’ backpacks or rooms? How about small vials or eye dropper bottles?
  • Have you come across unfamiliar chargers, coils, or batteries?
  • Have there been changes in your kids’ behavior such as increased mood swings, irritability, anxiety, or impulsivity?
  • Are your kids suffering from more frequent headaches or nausea?
