#BadMomsClub: "My husband knew that my son was a smoker and didn't tell me..."

Carol Ofori and her team of super moms are back and ready to dish out the best - and the baddest, advice to anyone who needs it!

Teenager smoking

Children will always try to hide things from their parents.

They might hide the fact that they broke something expensive, just deny it completely or even try to shift the blame to a sibling.

Those are the types of tiny lies a parent can get over.

But what do you do when you find out your teenager has picked up a dangerous, life-threatening habit, that they have been hiding from you for who knows how long?

This week, one mom not only discovered that her son had been smoking, but that he has had someone helping him in hiding his bad habit:

"Hi Bad Moms Club, 

I have a dilemma with my 17-year-old son and my husband. 

I recently found out that my son smokes and my husband was keeping it a secret from me. 

The two of them agreed to not tell me because it would apparently stress me out. 

Now I know and I’m angrier! Is this normal for father and son to collude and have secrets? 

Please help me Bad Moms Club!"

As always, resident supermom Carol has shared her opinion on the matter and has also roped in Debra Hughes, who is without a doubt one of Durban's finest and funniest moms (although she has recently relocated to Cape Town, we'll try not to judge her for that).

We also have some truly sage advice from Ayanda Tetyana, an educational specialist and parent coach, who has a passion for working with children.
