    Default Smoking and kids

    I have a bit of a problem really

    My ex smokes where my boy lives. I picked him up the other day and he smelt so bad of smoke we dumped all his clothes in the wash.

    This has caused arguments between the ex and I for awhile and I'm so angry that she coninues to smoke in the house where my boy is. I have approached her again and got told its my house I'll do what I want. She does not smoke in front of him but at night time she smokes in her lounge and bedroom when she watches tv and it obviously goes into his room and he has to lie with that smell all night.

    I have laid out the implications of her smoking on our son and that he lost his uncle last year to cancer and he does not want to lose his mum because she smokes. She does not want to seem to listen and this has been going on off and on for the past 5 years

    Any advice?

    If she values your son that much, she should make the effort and at least, smoke outside, when she has him. This could cause your son Asama problems.

    funny how the law protects the public from smoking in restaurants , bus shelters , pubs etc ..

    you cannot smack your child in your own home ...

    but you can smoke over them , leading to god knows what problems for the child ...

    yes there may be adverts about so many steps away outside ,

    but there should be a law ..

    at the end of the day .... isn't causing your child health problems ... called , child abuse .... as in the over weight kids issue a few years ago ..

    so if you can be done for child obesity ..

    you should be done for tobacco related abuse to children ..

    I understand where you're coming from, and I agree it's totally wrong for her to smoke in the house with children about. Sadly I doubt you'll get anywhere trying to stop it.

    Definitely, I despise it when I see poor kids in an enclosed space like a vehicle with parents/others smoking away, it should be classed as abuse.
