Amen to that. I had to move because of some very BAD neighbors. It's better to not have neighbors at all. Too many are nosy, overbearing and just plain loud and stupid with no consideration or respect for those around them. Not to mention those that let their kids run the neighborhood causing trouble.

I agree with the main topic that smoking around kids is abusive. I know someone who suffered from respiratory problems and infections because their parents smoked worse than chimneys inside the house for years. It's so unfair when the kids have no choice but to inhale toxic air. There are several states where it's illegal to smoke with kids in the car, or minors under the age of 16, 18, or in some cases 13. The adult will be fined if caught. This should be a law in all 50 states and pertain to any minor.

Do a search for 'what states is it illegal to smoke with kids in the car.'

many old houses are full of lead paint ad asbestos . the government okayed these toxic materials as safe for children to consume . today even China uses lead paint and ghb on the toys they sell to America . The exhaust fumes of a school bus can kill too . and how much asbestos is in the school Your child goes to ? If second hand smoke is bad what of the toxins released by nearly every plastics manufacturer ? Or the chemicals poured into the creek beside Visteon ? Or the fluoride dumped by the city into the drinkin' water ? Or the pollution given off by every automobile ? Does your child live within 1,000,000,000,000 of a automobile ? If so they are at RISK ! How much toxic poisons were released into the atmosphere in the creation of the toters ? If your kid doesn't want to breathe your nasty cigarette smoke put a N95 facemask on them - simple . It will not prevent them from getting 1,000 other forms of cancer or diseases but at least you can think you have made a effort .Does the dumping of Barium by the gov pose a health threat ? Yes but it sure makes holograms of planes crashing into towers look real . Just because 90% of Connersville dropped out of High school doesn't mean their children will , does it ? Spend more time teaching your children and they may enjoy learning . If you just "babysit" them they will become slugs later . If they cry comfort them since it is probably Your fault . You want a better life ? Then get up and do it for yourself . No jobs here ? Then move to where there are jobs -simple . Stop whining when you can do something and don't .

Beating your child is child abuse. Living in a neighborhood with 20 registered sex offenders is child abuse. Smoking around your child is not very healthy, but I have yet to hear of a child die or be seriously hurt from second hand smoke inhalation. How about you use your voice to keep drugs, gangs, & sex offenders out of our neighborhoods instead of smokers.
education is the key

'Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette and the smoke breathed out by smokers. Secondhand smoke contains more than 7000 chemicals. Hundreds are toxic and about 70 can cause cancer.1,2

There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke causes numerous health problems in infants and children, including severe asthma attacks, respiratory infections, ear infections, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).1 Some of the health conditions caused by secondhand smoke in adults include heart disease and lung cancer.1'

Read the full article here and the HEALTH EFFECTS of smoking around children.

http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fa...

Here's one that really stood out for all of you that are afraid of education and research:

'Studies show that older children whose parents smoke get sick more often. Their lungs grow less than children who do not breathe secondhand smoke, and they get more bronchitis and pneumonia.'

Only selfish and stupid parents would ever smoke around their children.
