Children And Secondhand Smoke Is Not A Good Combination — Trapper Sherwood

Is Secondhand Smoke Truly Dangerous Around Others?

After you realize that secondhand smoke can cause serious health problems in children, here’s what you can do about it.

Studies show that older children whose parents smoke get sick more often. Their lungs grow less than children who do not breathe secondhand smoke, and they get more bronchitis and pneumonia.

Wheezing and coughing are more common in children who breathe secondhand smoke.

Secondhand smoke can trigger an asthma attack in a child. Children with asthma who are around secondhand smoke have more severe and frequent asthma attacks. A severe asthma attack can put a child’s life in danger.

And children whose parents smoke around them get more ear infections. They also have fluid in their ears more often and have more operations to put in ear tubes for drainage.

But, parents can help protect their children from secondhand smoke by taking the following actions:

  1. Do not allow anyone to smoke near your child.
  2. Do not smoke or allow others to smoke in your home or car. Opening a window does not protect your children from smoke.
  3. Use a smoke-free day care center.
  4. Do not take your child to restaurants or other indoor public places that allow smoking.

Teach children to stay away from secondhand smoke.

By following the steps discussed above, you can help reduce the levels of second hand smoke your children can be exposed to.
