Vaping, Sniffing Deodorant And Other Dangerous Behaviours

Ginni and Jo tackle two tough questions on today's show; both about teens and dangerous behaviours.

A dad has emailed in after hearing of a young girl's death after sniffing aerosol deodorant, and wants to know to talk to his own teens about this scary trend. And another concerned parent has found out her son has been vaping at school, and needs to know where to go from here.

Plus, Ginni and Jo talk about the differences in what substances were available when they were younger, versus now.
