There’s no such thing as a typical kid who vapes. Today, more than 1 in 4 high school students and 1 in 10 middle schoolers are using e-cigarettes. And because of the highly addictive nicotine in most e-cigarettes, it’s only getting worse. Some kids are even vaping other products, like marijuana. Whether your child is vaping or not, it’s important for you to discuss the risks.
