I am new here, just found the site through 'Fabulous' magazine.
Just a bit about myself, I am mum to 2 children, my son is 5 and an asthma sufferer and my daughter is 4 and not a sufferer. I was diagnosed with sports asthma when I was small but it cleared up so alot of this is new to me.
I am hoping that some of you maybe able to give me a few tips on how to talk to my parents about passive smoking? They are very heavy smokers and smoke everywhere, in the house, car etc. I am very close to my parents as are my children but since my sons asthma has become worse over the last year I am in the position now where I need to stop him from visiting their house, unless I can get them to stop smoking in there perminantly (not just when the kids visit). Any ideas how to get across to them just how serious this is without offending them or worse still getting into an argument about what they do in their own house.
Tricky one I know but all suggestions greatly appreciated.
