Me as a parent understands when children start to involve in smoking habit, they use their pocket money to spend on their new habit. Children like to segregate themselves from other family members when they hook themselves with this habit. They need privacy with their peers,to enjoy smoking. If they consume more they will need more money than what they use to get for eating during recess time in school canteen. Teenagers would pick money from parents wallet if there are chances.
