QUITTING facts


Fact:
A new study reported that mothers who smoked during pregnancy indicated that their toddlers exhibited more negative behaviors -- impulsiveness, risk-taking, and rebelliousness -- than mothers who did not smoke during pregnancy.

Source:  Brook, J., Brook, D., and Whiteman, M. (2000) The influence of maternal smoking during pregnancy on the toddler's negativity. Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. 154(4), 381-385. (Reported in NIDA Notes, Vol. 16, No. 1, 2001.)
