CAMPOS, Hugo; PRECIOSO, José; PEREIRA, Maria Graça  e  SAMORINHA, Catarina. Hábitos tabágicos dos pais de alunos do 1.º Ciclo do Ensino Básico: Implicações para a intervenção. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp.193-208. ISSN 0870-8231.

The evidence that exposure to Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) is health damaging, in all stages of human life, particularly during childhood, is consistent, strong and has consensus. The main responsible for child exposure to environmental tobacco smoke at home are the parents. The goals of this paper are: 1) To determine the prevalence of the sample students’ fathers/mothers who smoke at home; 2) To identify some social-demographical factors related to tobacco consumption by the students’ fathers/ mothers, at home; 3) To relate fathers/mothers’ opinion regarding active and passive smoking with their tobacco consumption. The study took place in the end of the 2006/ 2007 school year, consisting on the application of a self-filling anonymous questionnaire to a sample of 515 parents (272 mothers and 243 fathers), parents of students aged between seven and ten years old. The main conclusion that can be drawn from this study is that there is a high percentage of smoking parents who smoke at home, putting their health and the health of the ones who live with them at risk, especially their children. This study shows the need for everyone who deals with smoking parents (paediatricians, family doctors, teachers, etc.) to act accordingly to protect children from this aggression. Implications for action are discussed.
