N.C. smokes tobacco products. 

The father of the children, S.S., smokes tobacco products.  N.C.'s mother, D.C., also smokes tobacco products.  The public health nurse stresses that the children were born premature and that tobacco smoke is an aggravating factor for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, otherwise known as SIDS.

When father resided with the family, he and N.C. did not agree that tobacco smoke was hazardous to health of the children.  They continued to smoke tobacco products.  This was evidenced by full ashtrays being observed in the residence when workers attended.  In addition, N.C. openly said to the public health nurse that she did not believe that second hand smoke was hazardous to the health of her children.

In addition, she stated that she would open the window to allow the smoke two leave the apartment.  One child, K., did die and the cause of death was attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.  After K. died on […] 2000, B. was born again premature.  The public health nurse monitored B. from birth urging mother not to smoke and to maintain a clean and healthy apartment for the sake of the health of the new baby as well as the oldest child, T.  The pattern of maintaining the filthy, smelly, unhealthy apartment continued.

Women who kill their children are given sympathy and sentenced to "treatment" while men who do the same thing are charged with murder and sentenced to life.

Perhaps it is not a coincidence that women are many times more likely to murder their offspring than men.
