Whats the best way to prevent huffing?
Talk to your child — today. Discuss the risks. Open discussion can help prevent a tragedy. Talk about what products may be abused and slang terms for inhalants. State the facts clearly. Emphasize that inhalants are deadly chemicals, not a harmless way to get high. Be a good listener. Encourage your child to come to you with questions or concerns. Set expectations. Let your child know that you won’t tolerate huffing or other types of inhalant abuse. Remind your child that you love him or her — and safety comes first. Stay involved. Meet your child’s friends. Know where your child is and what he or she is doing, especially after school. Support your child’s efforts to resist peer pressure.
