Smokers are a Bad Role Model for their Children?

Post  Admin on Fri Aug 01, 2008 3:22 am

Anti-Smoking Advocate Says Smokers are a Bad Role Model for their Children. By Michael Siegel.

I would say that how much the parents love their kids and show them love, the values they teach their kids, and the example they set for them in terms of morals such as compassion, kindness, honesty, respect, and tolerance are perhaps some of the most important factors in terms of whether I would consider a parent to be a good role model for their children.

To look only at smoking and state that if someone smokes, they are a poor role model for their child, regardless of all these other factors, seems to me to be narrow-minded and self-righteous. Http://www.smokersclubinc.com/Page/6010.html

Well said Admin, as the father of three girls and the grandfather of five my girls have never brought the police home indeed never brought any serious trouble home. They are not angels either, but when caught put their hands up take whats coming. I've smoked most of my life and if I am a bad role model then there should be more like me.

We should be putting stuff out like this ourselves Soapy instead of sitting back and letting these ASH people smear us all the time.

It is a bloody disgrace to call ordinary people, like yourself and me, and the thousands of other smokers, a bad influence on children. As you so rightly say, there should be more like you, and me.

A good point Trueone, The questions are:
What outlets do have available to us?
Would a carefully worded, balanced statement or individual letters be the best way forward?

I would think that perhaps the parenting publications may be a good place to start.
