My cousin just posted this on facebook and i don't get what it is supposed to achieve??
I completely understand the harmful effects of second hand smoke, especially in children, but does smokeing make you an unfit parent?
Most parents who smoke, or smokers in general, would never consider smoking indoors in front of a child, i certainly don't.
I rekon most prospective foster parents would quit their habit for the sake of a child, but does is this really the way to do it? I thought the aim was to get children into safe loving homes?
Smoking may be a safety issue but it is one that can be avoided through common sense on the parents' part. What about people living near a busy road? Should they be refused because of possible health issues?
How far will it go? Could someone like my sister be accused of endangering her own children for having a fag by the doorway when they're off to bed?
Maybe I'm not looking at this properly, but the above are genuine questions.
