Is it right to allow your 15 year old to smoke?
So, my wife tells me the other day that her son(my SS15) came to her a while ago, and told her that he smokes, which in my book is very honest and I give the kid credit for being so upfront. My wife smokes, and she told me that she has given SS15 a couple of cigarettes. To me that seems like condoning it, and I absolutely do not agree with it. My wife says that when she was a kid, she was allowed to smoke, but my question is...."Is it really ok to tell a 15 y.o. that it's ok to smoke since you were so honest with us?" What's next are we going to tell him that he can smoke weed too as long as he doesn't lie about it? I smoked when I was a kid too, but only behind my parents' back, and I think that I like it that way better. Knowing he smokes is fine with me, but I just don't want to see it or support his habit. Any opinions?
