If Parents Smoke
Minimize your kids' exposure
(HealthDayNews) -- If you smoke, you must take steps to minimize your children's exposure to its ill effects.
The Texas Medical Center offers these suggestions:
- Don't smoke in the home.
- If you are smoking inside, designate a well-ventilated smoking room where there is fresh, outside air exchange. A ceiling fan or small air filter is not effective.
- Never smoke in a car with children.
- Choose to sit in the non-smoking section of restaurants.
