How do I politely ask someone not to smoke?
Today I took my 2 year old daughter and my 7 year old brother to the park. There was this lady there with her 2 boys and my little brother instantly ran over to the merry go round with them. I don't have a problem with them socializing with anyone, as long as the other people don't mind. The lady let him on and started pushing it again and me and my dd went to the jungle gym. After a few minutes I seen a her light up a cigarette and continue pushing the kids. It upset me because even though she has the freedom to smoke, she didn't take my views into consideration. I don't like that my little brother was breathing in her second hand smoke and I really wanted to call him away from her. But I realized that since it wasn't a big deal to her, she probably wasn't doing it intentionally. Which is where I was torn about what to do. Luckily for me though, Josh got bored and hopped off a few minutes later and went to the swing.
What would be the proper way to ask this lady not to light up, or a discreet way to call the kids away if this problem happens in the future with anyone else?
I don't want to be rude and I fully support her right to smoke, just not around my kids. I don't want to cause conflict.
There would be no passion in this world if you didn't have to fight for what you believe..
