How do I get my ex's wife to stop smoking around my daughter and in a car when she's in it?

Is smoking around kids illegal?

  • No it's not illegal. If you don't like it then don't let her around your kid. Don't let hubby take your kid near her. I wouldn't let my kid go someplace I didn't want them...

  • If she's your daughter, the control is simple.

  • If I were you I would talk to your ex as I presume that this is when your daughter is with her father?
    And no I don't think it's illegal.

  • I have asked her many times to please not do it around her. And she agreed to stop.. But my daughter comes home smelling like smoke. And then I confront them. And it gets ugly

  • Ok, I read it bakwards...sounded the your hubby's ex was the problem...it's your ex's wife. I see now. Tell hubby the rules. If he isn't willing to follow them then complain to the judge. You are just as much a parent as he is. It's just not healthy!!

  • If its your ex husband( father of child and wife I dont think there is anything you can do about it. My friend has the same problem. The only thing is the wife wont let the little girl do stuff and makes her go to a church that isnt the mothers religion. The lawyer told her that there was nothing she could do about it. It isnt child abuse and it is the fathers wife. So basically what happens in that house happens and it doesnt matter.
