Babies & Cigarette Smoke

At the daycare center where two of my children go there are an adorable set of twins. They have heads of curly hair, bright eyes and quick smiles. They’re sitting up and grabbing toys… they are a joy.

And they smell like the bottom of an ashtray.

I was so surprised when I heard that they regularly smell like smoke. Their hair is drenched in it. Their car seats reek of it. Their clothes are full of it.

How said that parents find an addiction more important than their children. Do they think that the reports of the effects of cigarette smoke on children are false? Cigarette smoke increases the incidences of respiratory problems and a myriad of others health concerns.

If you had the opportunity, what would you say to these children’s parents? If you smoke around your children, what is your reasoning behind it? Share… I’m interested.
