“We are signing off on an original project, especially in tackling addictions like social media addiction and internet addiction, especially among the younger generation. We are gradually reaching the target of 10,000. We bring our hundreds of students here every day and train them. Give children a family of smokers or smokers, if any, their families will do it, how we can save ourselves from work, how we can inspire our students and what questions we are looking for answers to. I can make a living. “

Hopefully, we will see specific results in our city.” In the face of Internet addiction, quorum data is expected to decline rapidly.

And preventing parents from smoking on the porch and entering the house. The harm of smoking does not end when she takes her last breath. A mother smokes on the porch and starts caring for her young child. Emits substances. It harms the baby in close contact. I want mom and dad to quit smoking, but if they can’t quit, let them smoke for the last time. They smoke cigarettes at least one hour before they come home. We should not even smoke on the verandah and their guests should not be allowed to smoke. I will try to give my mother a message. “
The children who participated in the training said that they had a fun time and learned why they should stay away from substances like cigarettes and alcohol.
