The parents are weak idiots. That poor kid is going to grow up in no time at all. Without education and with a nasty habit he`ll be a bottom of the barrel uneducated grunt worker with no hope. Thanks, mom and dad!

Makes me feel better about myself. I quit smoking cold turkey on Sunday, I`m still going strong.

I don`t approve of kids smoking either, but what is equally offensive is people trying to disguise an editorial piece as straight journalism.

I guess parents are the same everywhere. In my country we do it with fast food.

If I didn`t want to live on this planet before watching this, it`s nothing compared to how I feel afterward.

Muslims. Nothing in the Koran about feeding tots a couple of packets of fags per day.

When the mother says, "We *have* to spend 20,000 rupiah every day on cigarettes" [my emphasis] and states that the son broke the windows of the house five times when she tried to force him to stop, that tells me the parents have been subjugated by the child.

Horrific state of affairs.

Too many people as it is . . . 7 billion . . . perhaps if more of em smoked there`d be enough food to go round!

leesah, that was kind of my point. Unless they`re giving cigarettes out for free, then he`s most likely getting them from his parents. It should be the easiest thing in the world for them to force him to stop smoking, he`s freakin 8 years old.

I agree, leave the issue alone and it will clear up on its own, no pun intended.

Apparently parents afraid of acting like parents and disciplining their children isn`t just a western phenomenon.
With luck the little bastard will have lung cancer at 16 and then they can wail about the injustice of it all.

They need stricter smoking legislation and more lax "beat-the-crap-out-of-my-kid" legislation.

How does an eight year old get cigs? It`s Indonesia you guys. There`s no minimum age to buy smokes. He took some money from his parents (or maybe they gave it to him) and walked into a store.

How does an 8 year old get the cigarettes? Are they just passing them out for free? I doubt he has a job, he`s 8.

@Gerry - Er, yeah it would put a stop to it. How many 8 year olds in America smoke?

HA HA HA HA
"Stricter legislation"!
Becuase that`s put a stop to it. No way those wimpy parents would buy them for the kid.
