    REPORT!!!! What a negligent mother! Pitifully disgusting! Those poor children's health!


    See, Im sure she is a great mother but I just cant see how letting your children smoke is anything but horrible. I would think that being a mum you should be telling your children not to do it and educating them on WHY you dont want them to smoke. The mum being the smoker should tell them what harm its doing her body and she DOESNT want them to be ruining their body like that.

    Im sorry Im just really put off going any further with this new friendshp. Not just because of this, but it just made me gobsmacked.

    I have once or twice. If more ppl reported it maybe things in society would change! Smoking is a drug, alcohol is a drug it's BAD for children, it's bad for ppl in GENERAL! These are children were talking about, misinformed children who have the WORLD as their oysters!!! Let's not let them throw it down the drain!!

    That is disgusting, those poor kids. Report it. It is a criminal offense to provide/sell cigarettes to a minor.

    Are they going to think she was a good parent in later years when they might get emphysema/cancer from their smoking?

    With all the research on the bad health effects of smoking nowadays there is no excuse in my mind for encouraging the habit in someone; especially if they are not mentally/emotionally able to make a fully informed decision.

    Touchy subject for me, I have a family member slowly dying from emphysema due to his smoking habit of previous years. I also had pretty bad asthma growing up so I know how tough it can be when you are struggling to breathe. Hard for me to understand why someone would promote something that can cause breathing problems...lungs don't grow on trees...

    Report her!!! Thats disgusting! She is far from a good mother, she sounds like a complete idiot. There is no sane reason why she would be feeding her children smokes.

    My mother passed from lung cancer (she never ever smoked) so this is a touchy subject for me.

    Ok. I would never buy a child cigarettes, nor smoke with them. That's not ok.

    This is why I get cranky! I was a CHRONIC asthmatic growing up! I lived in and out of hospital I nearly died several times but my drop kick dad smoked A LOT! He did drugs as well! I have NEVER smoked in my entire life! I swear to God I will have my fathers head on a chopping block should I get lung cancer or such from passive smoking. It's another reason why I like an extremely healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.

    You seem to know alot about what goes on in their home. I thought she was a new facebook friend, or you know them well and witness all this in person on a daily basis??

    My dad is dead. Smoking killed him. If I ever see a smoke in either of my childrens hands, heaven help the person who supplied them with it, because it sure as hell won't be me.

    Supplying smokes to your children is wrong, but it really isn't an issue that DOCS is going to get involved with I wouldn't think.
