Parents' Info

If you or another adult in your family smokes, here is some bad news. We know that is often seems as if the whole world is ganging up on smokers. The fact is, though, that secondhand smoke inhalation is dangerous to the health of children with asthma. Just being around a smoker increase the chance the child may need emergency treatment. If you are a smoker, try to restrict your smoking to outside the home. Smoking in a separate room isn't good enough. Tobacco smoke has particles that can remain in the air for hours. So avoid smoking in the home and in closed environments such as the car even if the children are outside or at school.

If you or a family member wants to quit smoking, here are some online resources that may be helpful:

Center for Disease Control

Surgeon General

Quit Smoking Support

American Lung Association

Web MD
