Guess What? Smoking is Bad for Your Kids

Written by dad - One Comment

Well, a new study has just confirmed the obvious… Smoking around your kids is bad for them. In fact, the effects of smoking during pregnancy can linger for up to the first twelve years of life, whereas smoking after birth can further worsen lung function. According to the study’s authors, it’s hard to tell whether the impaired lung function resulting from second-hand smoke early in life ends up being permanent, as a great many kids of smokers end up smoking by then time they reach their teen years (this, in and of itself, is a very bad side effect of smoking around your kids). When it comes to smoking, I’m just thrilled that we recently relocated to a town that doesn’t allow smoking in public establishments (restaurants, bars, etc.) so we don’t have to deal with the stupidity of others.
