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.
