Today we found 2 empty cans of different aerosols with the spray cap missing. One was a "gum remover" that had never been used, the other a water repellent that you would spray on a tent or outerwear. My first  thought was my 13 y/o might be lighting a lighter and spraying it with the aerosol. He has done that before. But why would the caps be missing?  You would need that to point the spray toward the flame.  Has anyone ever seen this before or know why the caps would be missing?

Thanks,
Another Worried Mom

I'm not really sure why the caps would be missing... unless they were taking it with them for some reason, although the funny thing is I am 13 and I do like to try the 'flamethrower' with the aerosol cans. I did that with some air freshener until these kids told me they... huffed that.

Thanks Darian. You mentioned flamethrowers. How do kids make them?

Well it's pretty unlikely that they were but many of these chemicals in that aerosol spray are very flammable, just point and shoot into a lighter and candle, and whoosh, a huge blaze of fire comes shooting out. This makes a dangerous weapon if you have bad intentions.
Otherwise they were huffing, Probably by using a plastic bag but they didn't leave it there otherwise it would have been obvious.
I'm not huffing anymore, no way made me feel like I was just dizzy and robotic, thats the suffocation mostly. I value my life.

It's so refreshing to hear a young person, on this board, make the RIGHT decision!  Good for you!  I commend you!

I Just want to share my experience with everyone that is having the same problem I'm having now. My daughter is only 12 years and I just found out what is happening. I really don't know what to do because even I already talk to her and she told me she is sorry and that she is not going to do it again a just have this fear and I just want her to be my little baby she was years ago so that I can protect her I know I can not be with her 24/7 that's killing me inside how can I believe that my daughter is going to be OK I don't know what to do .God please help me I can't do this by myself. I sorry, but I'm just crying. I just want people to learn about any-kind of drugs so that we can be aware of things that can happen with our children. My daughter is only 12 and I never thought something like this would happen. she has done it in school and she also did it with my cousin and her friends. Never let your kids go even to your relatives house because they can go into their room and huff. she started with the idea of cleaning the house but she would only do it when she is by herself before she started doing this she would not even organized her room, now I am scared of letting her clean the house.
