The Hottest Topic You Know Nothing About: Vaping and Juuling - Wednesday, December 12 at 7:00 p.m. at Lower Merion High School

Vaping and Juuling refers to the use of e-cigarettes. Their use has grown dramatically in recent years, especially among young people because the smokeless device can go undetected by parents and teachers. Many teen are unaware that these devices contain nicotine. Gretchen Hagenbuch from the Caron Foundation will talk about vaping and the issues surrounding this trend. She will empower parents to effectively communicate with their kids about vaping, and other habit forming behaviors. We will also examine the importance of establishing clear rules and consequences while also keeping communication open and creating support plans for teens in crisis.
