The Invisible Threat: Inhalants

Huffing, Sniffing, Bagging:

Kids as young as 7 use household products to get high. Twenty percent of children under 12 have tried inhalants…but even one use can be fatal. Kids huff because it’s inexpensive, legal, easily available, and largely not recognized by adults. Many seven year olds have very little resistance to peer pressure, and will follow the advice of friends who say it’s fun. As adults who care, it is our job to be educated about it. We can learn to be effective in providing a safer environment for our kids, and in equipping them to be smart.
