Since kt has arrived home I've become more & more aware of her smoking. Now I cannot stop this once she's out of the house - she can get smokes from her friends & so on. Having said that, kt is not giving up the shops around here that do not card kids. Additionally, kt shared with me that she would ask strange men to buy her a pack of cigarettes in exchange for.....???? fill in the blank. That blank (after she explained it to me) terrifies me. As I've always been one to pick her battles wisely I'm considering instead of paying kt any allowance in cash to buy her one pack of cigarettes a week for her chores & such. I have a staffing for kt on Wednesday & will bring before the team..... In my own mind, I'm protecting my daughter while giving her something that might give her cancer. What's the lesser of 2 evils?
