the answer to this is never hopefully your daughter will keep doing it wrong and be put off for life

Well from the stupidity of this question, if your the mother lets hope you can't produce any more children and if the Father lets hope for the same for you. As for the Daughter you don't deserve to have her as your child  and maybe you should put her up for adoption where someone would care for her welbeing better then you are. How sad that a parent would want to teach there child how to smoke. I do believe in the state of California if caught smoking in the same house as a child your slapped with a huge fine. What kinda of fine should you deserve for wanting to teach your child to smoke?

Never. look, I'm a smoker and even I think this is the dumbest question of the month.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

I disagree with the other posters. I routinely encouraged my daughter to start smoking when she was 12 years old, even though she really didnt want to at first. She was having trouble adjusting to a new school and finding her identity as a pre-teen, so I strongly encouraged her take up smoking for social reasons, even though I myself am not much of a regular smoker.

Guess what? It worked brilliantly. She made regular smoking a defining part of her adolecent self-image early in middle school, and by the time she was ready to start high school she was a confident, self assured young woman, who smoked almost two packs a day by age 15, and never had any problem finding dates with older boys.

Now she's almost 19 years old and although she remains as committed to chain smoking as ever, honestly, she loves it. After she left school, she got a job working mostly from home, to provide for her habbit, which is now upto nearly four packs a day. Moreover, her heavy smoking hasnt prevented her from being a wonderful mother to her three beautiful children. This lucky grandma wouldnt trade any of my daughters smoking for all the joy those grandchildren bring, so if chainsmoking continously throughout the day makes my daughter happy, then Im all for it. I just hope she can give me a 4th grandbaby before my 40th birthday!

"Hotgrandma," are you serious? Given the scenario you post above, I somehow doubt it... 

But if you are, then I hope you are also "all for" helping her pay her medical bills when she winds up with heart disease, or a stroke or emphysema or COPD.

And I hope you are all for hiring a full-time caregiver to look after your daughter, too. You won't be able to do it, you'll be too busy looking after your grandchildren.

Of course, that includes the health issues they'll have, as well. Bronchitis, asthma, allergies... the list goes on and on.

Wow. What a wonderful and loving mom/grandma you turned out to be! But then, you know what they say:

The family that wheezes together, shares diseases together!

The stupidest question I heard after the mother who wanted to know how long after her six year old's temp went down should she make her clean up her vomit off the floor.

Hotgrandma I KNOW you're being facetious.

My oldest daughter asked about smoking at age 11. I told her if she was serious we would discuss it when she turned 12. Shortly before her 12th. birthday she asked again. We talked about it and I knew she really wanted to. so, one of her birthday gifts was a pink cigarette case and lighter with a pack of Marlboro Ultra Light 100's. She was so happy and asked if she could really start smoking. I said, Yes if you want to. I was amazed when she opened the pack, took out a cigarette and lite it. She then took a deep drag on it and inhaled. To my amazement she didn't cough or anything. She held it in for a few seconds and then slowly exhaled. She had the biggest smile on her face and said, Wow that was great. Well that was almost 6 years ago. She is now a beautiful senior honor student who is on the basketball and track team and is a chearleader. She now smokes about two packs a day. Her two younger sisters, now 15 and 13 also started smoking on their 12th. birthday. They are all very pretty, polite young ladies. We do get some strange looks sometimes while out in public and smoking. I always laugh when people stare at us and my 13 year old takes a deep long drag on her cigarette and then blows smoke towards them. I have allowed them to choice their own brands. I still smoke Marlboro Ultra Lights. My seventeen year old Judy now smokes Capri's, her 15 year old sister Dawn smokes Marlboro Menthol's and my youngest Jenny smokes Newport's. My husband owns his own business and is very successful so we can easily afford to buy their cigarettes. I haven't regreted letting them smoke because I see what a pleasure it is to them.

Considering that this is an old question (a year old) and "Missy" is a brand new member, I suspect that Missy's answer is full of hooey.

And if it's not, then Missy is an idiot. Period.
