Tobacco-free society is one of the goals and cherished vision of the World Health Organization (WHO). The health-related ill effects of tobacco are devastating and have ruined families due to multiple health morbidities and economic consequences thereby. Prevention of tobacco habit and tobacco cessation are key methods that should be adopted to avoid such devastation. Amongst various strategies adopted and recommended for tobacco cessation, advice given by very young children for tobacco cessation seems to be an innovative tool especially when one elder in the family are addicted to tobacco. We have come across such families where the young children of these families advised their parents to leave the habit of tobacco. Such an initiative from the young generation can have long-lasting influence on tobacco prevention strategies.
