I am a 24 yr old with 4 children. I was 16 when I got pregnant with my son and 17 when I had him he is now almost 7. My oldest daughter is 4, my middle daughter is almost 3 and my youngest is almost 2. I am a stay at home mom and do daycare out of my home as well. The question I have is if you smoke or someone you know smokes cigarettes, do you smoke indoors with your children there or do you go outside? Do you smoke in the car as well or wait until your stopped and outside? I smoke outside of my home. It's my own prefrence and opinion and with the second hand smoke rate so high I don't want to take the chance of my children getting sick. My son already has asthma. I also don't smoke in my vehicle either. I'll wait until we are stopped and smoke quick before I get the children out. My daycare childrens mother smokes as well but doesn't smoke in her house either. I respect my home and don't like the smell of smoke lingering inside. But I don't think that it's wrong to smoke indoors but I wouldn't advise doing it in the same room. I was just wondering some other peoples opinions on this subject!
