I dont allow smokers around my kids. I am not risking their health. They were born premature and with lung problems. My in laws smoke 2 packs a day. They have never met their grandchildren because of it. DH feels the same way. They havent met other family members either.

His parents will never stop smoking (their words) so we dont allow them around the kids.

It is their loss.

I'm sure I posted about it there also. My in laws are making a big stink about it lately so it's annoying me again.

I think you're being ridiculous. Don't allow them to smoke around your kids for sure but you can't protect them from everything. I wouldn't allow them in a house that is smoked in either.

My father smokes cigars occasionally. I grew up with him smoking cigarettes off and on. He’d step outside to do it. I’d at Least ask if they’re cool with smoking outside, etc. If not have them at your house and request they use nicotine gum or vape.

They smoke in their home and car so even if they don't smoke around my kids they reek. I used to have asthma attacks every time I was around them and I don't even have as bad of lung problems as my kids.

Skype? Zoom call? It's not live and in person, but still...they can get to know their grandparent's.
I come here to give my opinion; not try to validate it. I come to converse and not to debate.

I've offered. It's not good enough for them.
