That is NOT TRUE.
She might be an adult but she DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to inflict second-hand smoke, FULL OF DEADLY TOXINS, on those innocent children. That just burns me UP!!!!!
My ex-husband suddenly started smoking - IN HIS HOUSE - after we got divorced.
When my kids were there, they came home smelling of smoke. :angryfire Not only that, but his new girlfriend smoked around my children and they stunk. I told him that if they want to smoke - FINE! - STEP OUTSIDE. But do not - under ANY circumstances! - expose MY children to deadly toxins!
There is absolutely no excuse - ANYTIME, ANYWHERE - for this. If a parent wants to smoke, they can step outside. No way should they smoke in a car.
Of course, he didn't comply willingly.
I told my lawyer and we had to take him to court - had a hearing in front of some court-appointed person, but I got a COURT JUDGEMENT that he (or anyone else) could NOT EXPOSE THE CHILDREN to second-hand smoke.
Don't let anyone tell you you can't do anything about it.
You can, and I did.
It's just a shame that you have to take people to court to get them to act like responsible adults. :angryfire :angryfire
