The prevention of adolescent smoking has focused on peer influences to the relative neglect of parental influences. Parents socialize their children about many behaviors including smoking, and parental rules about their child's smoking have been related to lower levels of adolescent smoking. Moreover, among adults, indoor smoking restrictions have been associated with decreased smoking. Accordingly, the current study tested the relation of adolescent smoking to home smoking policy (rules…

Impact of Home Smoking Rules on Smoking Patterns Among Adolescents and Young Adults

The influence of household smoking rules seems to extend beyond adolescence into the young adult years among people who continue to live at home with their parents, grandparents, or foster parents.

Associations between parental smoking restrictions and adolescent smoking.

It is suggested that parental smoking restrictions may have the potential to impede adolescent progression to adult smoking behavior by reducing smoking rates and nicotine dependence, and increasing motivation to quit, self-confidence to Quit, and health risk perception.

Antismoking parenting practices are associated with reduced rates of adolescent smoking.

Adolescents of parents who report having rules about smoking in one's home, using nonsmoking sections of public establishments, or asking others not to smoke in one’s presence were significantly less likely to smoke than adolescents ofParents who did not engage in antismoking actions.

Household Smoking Restrictions and Adolescent Smoking

Although household smoking restrictions offer health benefits, they do not appear to be associated with adolescent smoking after accounting for other factors, and may explain apparent contradictions in the literature.

Maternal Influences on Smoking Initiation Among Urban Adolescent Girls

Ass associations between maternal social influences to smoke and girls' early smoking behaviors and perceptions of mothers' smoking were examined, with Black girls more influenced by their perceptions of Mothers' smoking status and by mothers' expectations of adult smoking than Latinas.

The Effect Of Family And Social Environment On Smoking Behaviour In Adolescence

Family and social environments play a significant role in preventing or promoting smoking and should be regarded as crucial factors when devising policy to curb adolescent smoking.

Home smoking bans in Finland and the association with child smoking.

The lack of total ban was strongly associated with living in non-intact families, parents' lower educational level, parental smoking and parents' permissive attitude towards child smoking, and partial or no ban increased the likelihood of being a daily smoker.

Parental smoking cessation and children's smoking: mediation by antismoking actions.

In conclusion, asking to sit in a nonsmoking section of a public establishment substantially mediates the relationship between parental smoking cessation and children's smoking.



Anti-smoking socialization: relationship to parent and child smoking status.

Survey of children in 3rd through 8th grades indicates that children from households where one or both parents smoke perceive less anti-smoking socialization than their peers from nonsmoking households, and anti- smoking socialization is positively associated with authoritative parenting.

Do as I say: parent smoking, antismoking socialization, and smoking onset among children.

Household smoking restrictions and adolescents' exposure to environmental tobacco smoke.

Health risks experienced by adolescents living with adult smokers can be substantially reduced by household smoking restrictions, and the promotion of such restrictions as a strategy to reduce health risks is suggested.

Maternal socialization of adolescent smoking: the intergenerational transmission of parenting and smoking.

Support for the intergenerational transmission of parenting practices emerged only in mothers' reports of support, and results suggest expanding current peer-focused prevention efforts to include parental socialization strategies.

The Contributions of Mothers and Fathers to the Intergenerational Transmission of Cigarette Smoking in Adolescence

Similarity on cigarette smoking among mothers, fathers, and young adolescents (mean age = 12.6 years) and the differential relevance of sociopsychological processes underlying similarity between

Why children start smoking cigarettes: predictors of onset.

Though the 27 studies are far from perfect, it is believed that they confirm the importance of many well-accepted predictors and raise some questions about others, and encourages more investigations of the potentially different predictors of transitions to experimental or regular cigarette smoking.

Predicting the Onset of Cigarette Smoking in Adolescents: A Longitudinal Study

In a longitudinal study, the second-year-smoking status of adolescents who were initially Nonsmokers or Triers was predicted from their Year 1 standing on three types of social psychological

Hospital smoking bans and employee smoking behavior: Results of a national survey.

American hospitals' experiences with smoking bans, which directly affect more than 5 million workers, should be examined by other industries as a method of improving employee health.

Workplace smoking restrictions, occupational status, and reduced cigarette consumption.

Reductions in workday cigarette consumption among indoor workers subject to different levels of smoking restriction were examined using representative population data for both blue-collar and white-collar workers, and this pattern of findings applied to all occupational-status groups.
