The beer one is not such a big deal without knowing any of the facts around what happened. Maybe the kid just picked up the beer when mom & dad where looking the other way. The kid smoking I just don't get.

I'll have to give the kid credit for a two year old he has pretty good cordination. My three year old would have burned herself 3 times in that video and it does make him look much older then two.

That's messed up! Fristdown is right about the kid’s coordination though. For a two year old he smokes like a champ.

The funny thing is the parents say he "can't" quit. If he's just 2 years old....why not just lock him in a room until he goes through DT's???

they say he bangs his head against the wall in rage...let him....the human body has limits...he will knock himself out, thereby not doing further damage....

Maybe thats how we get kids to stop smoking. Expose them to it before they can develop a taste for it. Kind of like the parent that forces his kid to smoke an entire pack.

Which flies in the face of the science involved with nicotine and how it reacts with your brain.

Doctors, pffft. What do they know?

I think he was talking back in the days when parents would catch their children smoking they would lock them in a closet and make them smoke a pack of cigs. It would get so bad they would never want to smoke again. I heard about that but never knew anyone who did this or had it done to them.

Yeah that's exactly what I'm saying. Any parent taking that approach should be strung up by their toenails or shot, because it flies in the face of medical science.

Smoke a lot of cigarettes = addiction. Make your kid smoke a pack to gross them out? You're actually just getting them addicted. It's a retarded approach that hopefully stays "back in the day" where it belongs.

Maybe Dirtbag was being sarcastic. Hopefully.

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]That statistic is kind of worthless, 3-15 years old? They should break it up a little like 3-9, 10-15. I would guess US data is pretty close to 25% of kids in that age "range" trying cigarettes. [/FONT][/COLOR]

But you may be onto something, i was in 6th grade (maybe 12?) when i first tried a cig and i am a non smoker.[/FONT][/COLOR]

are you saying a 2yr old has as much self awareness and will power as you? I don't think this is one of those things that's so easy even a 2yo can do it.
