Parents can be a bad role model for their kids

By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of American Academy of Personal Training

Parents, like it or not, you are a role model for your kids…especially when it comes to smoking.  New research shows there is a definite family connection for smokers which transfers from parents to their children.  According to the report, a father who smokes definitely influences his son to start smoking.  The same is true between mother and daughter.  This connection typically stays between the sexes.  A mother’s smoking does not influence her son and a smoking father does not influence his daughter.

So parents, now you have yet another reason to put those cigarettes out for good.  You are setting an unhealthy example for your kids.
