  • It should be illegal and considered child endangerment. People who do it are selfish selfish blow poison into the faces of your children is abuse. plain and simple. I will NEVER respect a parent who does that.

  • I think its pathetic that the government has to step in and make a law preventing this in order to protect children from their own parents. These parents should automatically realize what they're doing to their children - its been known for years that second hand smoke kills.

  • it's not something that I would do well because i don't smoke, if i did i would not smoke in the car or anywhere around my children. i'll poison my own lungs not theirs, but i will not be the one to tell another parent about theirselves and their choices either

  • I think in California illegal but I don't know for sure. The people we are friends with that smoke - they go outside and never around the kids... and don't smoke in a car that they know a kid will eventually be in. I understand everyone is different.. but that is how our circle of friends all are when it comes to this.. It is just understood the babies come first.

  • Oh my Gosh!! this drives me insane!! I try not to be judgmental, but you have to be some kind of stupid to do this!!! seriously, do they have no concern about what it does to their kids?! If you want to smoke, you're an adult, by all means go ahead, but your poor children aren't able to make that choice yet! and than the kids have to go to school and other places, smelling like that. that has to be embarrassing for them!! sorry... one of my biggest pet peeves!!
