Question: I am doing a persuasive essay/speech for my english class. my topic senctence is 'Smoking around children should be illegal' and i am agreeing with this. I need 3 reasons to make people believe this is true and i only have 2. Here are my reasons: 1. Children can develop many health problems from second hand smoke. 2. Children will think it is okay to smoke from their parents, and when they grow up, their children will think it is okay to smoke from them, that pattern will continue, which will equal generations of smokers. So i've already used impressions and health. and remember, this is children, not unborn babies and not teenagers. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much! Btw, I am 13 years old and am only in grade 7 english so nothing toooo complicated. thanks again!

IT MAYBE A BIT TOO COMPLICATED, SORRY. Personally, I see smoking as something that people choose to do over the health and well-being of themselves and others around them. It's unfortunate that the craving of cancer and emphysema, among the other illnesses that smoking causes, is higher than their love for themselves and their children. I know it's addictive... thing is, don't be a moron to start doing so, and you won't have that problem of making excuses of "But I'm addicted!" Smoking is a moronic act that people do to themselves. It would be great if it was considered child abuse. Afterall, the children are not safe from second hand smoke, and parents are purposely exposing them to it. Once a smoking parent succumbs to cancer, emphysema, what have you... the child can then be placed with someone who cares about their health. → Jacknife

Phoebe Originally Answered: Men and women want to have children for different reasons?
This makes it sound like men don't want to be fathers, because they're incapable of responsibility. How sad. I really hope you grow up some day. Btw, women don't get pregnant "on purpose" like many men believe. There's no completely effective birth control that lets you have unlimited sex. Actions ALWAYS reap consequences. If you're a man you're giving yourself pathetically little credit in life. I'm not sure why men think this way. It makes them seem as stupid as we think they are. Honestly, if you don't want to grow up that's fine...men don't have to, women are just doing their duties for the world. Men can go ahead and abandon kids because mommy will do the work. Perhaps your friends forgot that putting their dick in something long-term makes a baby. Maybe they resent the fact that they found loser women who aspired to nothing and wanted their kids. Maybe they found dumb girls who were so impressed by them that they leeched off of them. This is just as much their fault as it is the women's. Lol.

Im 13 almost 14. It can get children addicted to smoking the child has no say whether they are around it or not second hand and third hand smoke are just as harmful as smoking this was a commerical....imagine being strapped in a chair. the room is closed off to all fresh air....the room feels with smoke....you can't talk...you began to cough....so on and so on....basically it was a child in a car seat with the windows rolled up and someone was smoking in the car. It is selfish and disgusting. It teaches bad habits.

Besides those 2 reasons? It affects them socially. Many children don't want to be around the children of smokers because they come to school smelling like smoke. It's in their clothes and hair. Plus, other parents won't want their children to go over to that child's house for the very reasons you've already mentioned. It can affect hygiene. Sounds bad, but it's true. When you're around the smoke so long, it affects your sense of smell. You can't always tell how you smell.

Financial issues? It could cause them to be impulsive spenders, seeing their parents smoke everywhere. Also it won't benefit them financially because their parents are always spending on cigarettes. Also the child would probably not enjoy living in a house full of smoke, or a car. It's not very fun. Coughing is not a fun thing. Also people might think the child smokes themselves because their clothes will smell like cigarettes... Hope I helped...

My father smoked 3 packs a day around my sister and I, plus we had 3 grandparents smoke around us too. We turned out normal healthy kids. Don't listen to the lab rats or the non smokers. They're just paranoid. If second hand smoke was as dangerous as people believe it is, there would be nobody alive in their 50s and 60s.

Sure, second-hand cigarette smoke will eventually kill you, but there's no murder charge because the tobacco industry is too rich and powerful. You'll soon be 18; move out of your mother's house. In the meantime, go outside or open a window when she starts smoking.

Children do not have strong lungs and if they grow up in a smoking enviroment, then they will have problems breathing at a younger age and give them problems with sports and activites which ruins their health even further.

Is it required of you to have 3 points? Because I think you have touched on the main reasons for it. You could greatly expand on both of those points to make enough of a speech.

YES, very true. It's like receiving stolen property. To all of you who answered on the contrary, if it wasn't for illegal immigrants, you'd be buying everything 10 x the amount you pay now, so I wouldn't go there if I were you. You'll be sorry!
