CHILDREN AND SECONDHAND SMOKE

Healthy People 2020 is an organization that strives to better the health of the nation by
objectives set every ten years. The vision of Heathy People 2020 is “a society in which all people
live long, healthy lives.” (Healthy People 2020, 2019) The overall goals of Healthy People 2020
can be summarized into life longevity and health; improve on inequality and disparities; and
promotion of life quality. The mission of Healthy People 2020 is prioritization; education; setting
objectives; use evidence based and multidisciplinary approach; research, evaluation, and
collection of data. (Healthy People 2020, 2019) The focus of this paper will be on objective TU
11.1, reduce the amount of secondhand smoke exposed to children ages three to eleven.
The 2020 target percentage of children exposed to secondhand smoke, set by Healthy
People 2020, was 47%. Between 2005 and 2008 the percent of children exposed to secondhand
smoke in the United States was 52.2%. From 2011 to 2014 the statistic was much lower at
39.9%. According to these statistics from Healthy People 2020, the nation has reached that 47%
goal. As a nation, the percentage of children exposed to secondhand smoke is going in the
desirable direction but there is more work to be done.
The culture that is most impacted is the African American culture. The African American
community’s percentage of child exposure to secondhand smoke, from 2005 to 2008, was 67.4%.
This is 15.2% above the national average of 52.2%. This culture also did not see the drastic
decline seen nationally in 2011 to 2014. From 2011 to 2014 the African American community
only improved by .6%, bringing their average to 66.8%. The 2011 to 2014 time period showed an
even more drastic difference when compared to the national average, African American children
are 26.9% more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke. (Healthy People 2020, 2019)
The best way to combat this issue is to use health promotion strategies, specifically active
strategies of health promotion such as smoking cessation. (Potter, Perry, Stockert, & Hall, 2017)

Health promotion seeks to achieve physical, mental, and social excellence. Health promotion
related to smoking is usually going to utilize primary prevention to decrease the percentage of
children affected my secondhand smoke.
Puffing Away Parental Rights: A Survey and Analysis of Whether Secondhand Smoke and
Exposure is Child Abuse
In this article, the author explains the ways that exposure to secondhand smoke could be
considered a form of child abuse. This article states “secondhand smoke is the largest
preventable cause of death ad disability in the United States”. (Huml, 2019) Children exposed to
secondhand smoke are more likely to contract bronchitis, pneumonia, and ear infections. The
reason children are more susceptible to secondhand smoke is that there is a lack of escape from
the smoke given that the smoker is more than likely their caregiver. Most exposure happens in
the home. (Huml, 2019) There has been legislature created to protect the children of our nation
as seen in Arizona where it is illegal to smoke in a vehicle with a child. Arizona was the first
state to enforce this in 2006 and since then six more states have created this law as well. The
thing that makes regulation by law and policy tricky is that it is difficult to monitor. Since most
exposure happens in the home, it makes monitoring next to impossible. (Huml, 2019)
Barriers and Motivators to Reducing Secondhand Smoke Exposure in African
American Families of Head Start Children
This article looks specifically at the African American culture and secondhand smoke
exposure of children. “Estimates have shown that over 50% of inner-city, predominantly African
American children live with at least one smoker.” (Hoehn, Riekert, Borrelli, Rand, & Eakin,
2016) As stated previously, African American children are at a higher risk of exposure to
secondhand smoke, even more so in the low-income population of African Americans. Hoehn,

Riekert, Borrelli, Rand, and Eakin found that 71.2% of African American child caregivers are
smokers. (2016) Confrontation of asking others not to smoke, large families living together,
social tendencies, weather, childcare, safety, and police presence were reported as barriers or
reasons children are exposed to the smoke. (Hoehn et al., 2016)
Smoking Inside is Never Okay. Smoke Outside. Do it for Your Children: Keys to a
Successful Mass Media Campaign Against Secondhand and Thirdhand Smoke.
Rigolle used a telephone poll in 2014 in a sample town to gather statistics on children
being exposed to secondhand smoke. This was a follow up to a 2008 poll. After comparing data,
it was shown that numbers had improved. This study found that the biggest issue is education.
The media campaign, titled ‘Smoking inside is never okay’, was a result of this study. After the
campaign, the poll was redone and showed even more improvement. This study shows the need
for education in the smoking community. (Rigolle, 2019)
Health promotion is vital for a thriving and healthy community. Secondhand smoke is a
risk that is preventable. Education is imperative, as shown by much research. Many parents and
caregivers do not realize the impacts that their smoking has on children. As seen in Arizona, laws
are being created and put in place to help protect others from secondhand smoke; however, these
laws have limitations. The most effective form of prevention is primary prevention. Some
primary preventions that will support health promotion are smoking cessation programs and
educating this population. (Potter et al., 2017) These health promotion activities need to be
stressed among the African American population due the higher risk for African American
children and exposure to secondhand smoke.
In closing, the improvements being made to decrease childhood exposure to secondhand
smoke are undeniable; however, there is still an ample amount of improvements that are needed.

(Healthy People 2020, 2019) Based of the information gathered, I believe the best form of active
health promotions are education and cessation program availability. (Potter et al., 2017)
Education can be in many forms such as flyers, commercials, parenting courses, and community
outreach presentations. You must assess your audience to decide which approach would be most
beneficial. (Hoehn et al., 2016) When educating, it would be helpful to include smoking
cessation information. If more smokers are educated and presented with various cessation
programs the nation would see an even bigger improvement in the battle of children and
secondhand smoke exposure.
