I would like to start talking with my 5.5yo DD about smoking, drugs, alcohol etc and why its bad, the laws, health repercussions etc. The catch is, DH is a smoker. I'm really struggling to come up with a way to talk about cigarettes without scaring the heck out of her that Daddy is going to get sick with these terrible diseases cigarettes cause. For that matter, I'm not big on looking this stuff up because I hate to think that DH could end up sick. So any ideas on how I discuss this with her without scaring her over her daddy's welfare??
And to be clear-DH does not smoke in the house, around the kids or in the family vehicle. If he comes in from having a smoke and smells strongly of smoke, I make him change clothes, wash his hands and brush his teeth.
