A two-year-old boy has been put up for adoption because his parents are smokers.This has been reported in much of the MSM, but the smoking is cited as the main culprit.
Only in passing is the following mentioned:
The judge was told that the boy's father had mental health problems and that their home had been “dirty, smelly and unhygienic”.Now if I was the health visitor I wouldn't be able to bear the guilt of being the cause of a son being legally torn away from his parents for ever.
There was also evidence of drug paraphernalia and the father had also tested positive for cocaine.
And I would hope that this foul creature will repent of the evil she has encouraged when she is finally on her death bed.
Responding to this case, Deborah Arnott, Chief Executive of health charity ASH said: “This is a very sad case. It should serve as a reminder to other parents or guardians who smoke that they should avoid smoking in the presence of their children because of the significant harm that can be caused by tobacco smoke.”
