“Mummy and Daddy please stop smoking”, is a wish nearly all children have and they are willing to make considerable sacrifices to help their parents quit, a recent government survey shows.
The survey, commissioned by the Department of Health on children’s attitudes to smoking, found that 98 per cent of children with a smoking parent want them to give up and almost three-quarters are worried about their parents dying as a result of tobacco use.
More than half of the 1,000 8- to 13-year-olds surveyed would be prepared to give up pocket money, seven out of 10 would promise to do their homework every night and go to bed on time, and one-third would even give up Christmas presents.
The youngsters also revealed that they want to live in a smoke-free environment, with about 80 per cent opposed to parents smoking in front of them at home and in the car.
