What will you do? Why?
Child of your neighbor is addicted to tobacco chewing.
If, I find out that my neighbour's child is addicted to tobacco chewing, my first step would be to inform his parents. I would sit with the child and try to explain him the harmful effects of tobacco chewing. I will show him/her certain videos and pictures which highlight the damage caused by tobacco chewing. If required, we can take the child for professional advice.
If I find that the child of my neighbour is addicted to tobacco chewing:
- I will make him aware about the health problems associated with chewing tobacco like mouth cancer, tooth decay, gum diseases, etc. This will help him to make a decision about quitting tobacco.
- I will advise him to reduce the use of tobacco every day till he finally quits it completely.
- I will also make him talk to his family or friends regarding the issue, so as to help him get rid of the habit.
