Cross cultural kids are children or teens who are living in a country outside of where they or their parents were born, have moved from community to community growing up or have parents from different ethnic or racial backgrounds.
"Juuling" is a form of vaping or inhaling vapor produced by an e-cigarette that is gaining popularity among teens. It is discreet, odorless and has a pleasant taste - but could be as equally unhealthy, or worse. Why are more teens getting hooked on "Juuling" than regular cigarettes?
