I Can't Stand to See Parents Smoke With Kids In the Car

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 210 People

    Why?

    I'm a mum and used to be a smoker. I never ever smoked in the car when my daughter's in it too, I couldn't make myself. I want her to be healthy and not get her lungs full of my second hand smoke! It's not difficult to find somewhere to stop when you need one (and even though she...

    This Drives Me Batty

    It infuriates me to no end when I see parents smoking with their kid(s) in the car.  And let me tell you, I'm a smoker AND a parent, but I don't think it's okay to subject your kids to your rotten habit.  I know that smoking is bad for me, and I don't care if you...

    It's Illegal

    Where I live it's illegal to smoke in a car that has minors in it. The smoker can be charged and if the smoker is a parent, further investigation by Children's Aid is likely.I find it sad that this isn't the case in other jurisdictions.
