    Whether or not smoking in the car with your children qualifies as neglect or abuse is no excuse to hijack the thread into the problems of child protection services. If you have a beef with cps, then start a thread about cps.

    The debate is about a law effecting children. You can debate it without discussing children. If someone posts what you did, that person is the one being dishonest.

    It's truly amazing how daft some people can be.
    I'd given up on trying to reason with someone who can't see what a train wreck this thread has become....mostly because of her.

    Thanks.

    Re: Smoking Illegal With Children In Car[W:501]

    Yahoo!

    2014: Friday's report said 100,000 of the smoking-caused deaths over the past 20 years were babies who died of sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, or complications from prematurity, low birth weight or other conditions related to parents' smoking. And it adds cleft palate birth defects to that list of smoking risks to babies.
    2014: About 20.8 million people in the U.S. have died from smoking-related diseases since then, a toll the report puts at 10 times the number of Americans who have died in all of the nation's wars combined. Most were smokers or former smokers, but nearly 2.5 million died from heart disease or lung cancer caused by secondhand smoke.

    But you know....go ahead and TEACH your kids that smoking is okay. Teach them that it's cool. Help them get started by smoking around them. A lot. Smoke in small confined spaces and get the lungs and eyes accustomed to the habit.

    Bond with your child over a cigarette.

    Surely there's nothing harmful or hazardous in whatever you breath out, or whatever comes off the end of your product of choice.

    Perfectly safe.

    Since smoking is a direct threat to the child's health and safety I advocate that police be directed to use deadly force to eliminate the threat to the child.
