New York City mum Meredith Berkman and two other mothers started the group Parents Against Vaping E-cigarettes (PAVe) in 2018, after learning their teenage sons were Juicing. Here are the clues they say you should look for if you suspect your child is vaping.

1 UNEXPLAINED SWEET ODOR

Kids tend to choose scented or flavored vapors that can leave a sweet odor in their room or on their clothes.

2 SECRETIVE BEHAVIOUR

They may make frequent excuses to go to the bathroom or outside to vape.

3 MOOD SWINGS

The nicotine in vaping can produce extreme anxiety, irritability or explosive anger.

4 UNFAMILIAR ELECTRONICS

Some e-cigarettes look like flash drives, and most require batteries or charging cords.
