Agree....Disagree? If you don't care about your health, neither do I! But I do care about the health of innocent children. I also care about my children when I am out in public when I have to walk near a smokers fumes. I have to re route myself to avoid it. But what about the smokers child that cant avoid it? Doesn't seem fair to the innocent child, does it? Thoughts....Answer Question

I agree with you, I think it is child abuse. And if you look at the studies they have done on second hand smoke you'll surely agree. Not to mention the fact that it stinks! My family smoked in the house, the car, etc..... and I suffered with breathing problems my entire childhood. When I had my children I decided that they would never be in that kind of environment no matter who the person was. They now feel the same way. Smokers are generally very selfish when it comes to their nasty habit and are thoughtless when it comes to the health and comfort of others. It is too bad!

I agree. I worked at a pediatric office and we had a little boy with severe asthma. His dad smoked, and the doctor told him not to smoke around the little boy. The dad scoffed and said "All that stuff about smoking being bad for you is B.S. made up by the government." I was floored! He put his addiction in front of his son's health.
