You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
https://www.childwelfare.gov/can/defining/federal.cfm"Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation"; or
"An act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm."
This is broad enough to include repeated and extreme exposure of a known cancer-causing carcinogen to children.
Would I like parents to not smoke if their kids are in the car, yes. But it is their car, a person should be allowed to smoke'm if they had them. This is a very difficult issue, the only thing I could largely stand behind is a ban on smoking in the car or in the room of a house were a baby is in the room or in the car because of child endangerment issues. But even that is a bit iffy because again because if a car if blue from the smoke and 2 toddlers are coughing their lungs out, what do you do with that situation?
Very difficult but as long as there is a resemblance of private property, I do not think the government has the legal right to ban smoking in cars if children are present.

In any case, if a parent is chronically exposing the child to deadly carcinogens then a prosecutor could make the case under the definition I pasted that child abuse is going on.
