About the Cover

This issue’s cover article examined parental knowledge, attitudes, efficacy, and protective behaviors about thirdhand smoke and the toxic mixture of chemicals left in indoor environments after smoking stops. Parents with children 0–12 years had significantly higher knowledge, attitudes, efficacy, and protective behaviors than did parents with children 0–17 years. In addition, statistical modeling significantly accounted for thirdhand smoke-related parent behaviors with the strongest independent associations being attitudes, smoking status, reaction to the smell of tobacco smoke, home ownership, and age. Overall, families with adolescents require education to protect all children from exposure to thirdhand smoke.
