Through my work I am privileged to interact with many families in our area and, of course, that includes some smokers. Most adults who smoke are genuinely concerned for the well-being of children, at least according to what I see. As we know, small amounts of secondhand smoke can trigger allergies, asthma attacks and other breathing problems, especially in children. Many smokers and non-smokers wish to set an example and communicate a message that encourages youth not to start smoking. Many are also willing to support and cooperate with efforts to promote the health of all non-smokers, such as by observing designated smoking areas, both indoors and out.
