  • There parents prob already no. If you no that their parents don't know their smoking and wouldn't want them to then sure go ahead. But it's really not ur place

  • No- it was outside of school and therefore not my concern.

  • Depends on how well you know the kids and the parents. If it's a small town and a small school, an you are friends with the parents, or if you can snap a pic and show it to them so there's proof, maybe. Otherwise I'd leave it alone.

  • No.

  • I would. You are really doing the student a favor. Smoking is a hard habit to quit, it's bad for your health and it's expensive.
