Date:12/16/2008

Nearly Two-Thirds of Smoking Parents Report Their Child Has Been Exposed to Secondhand Smoke in the Past Week

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Parents magazine and the American Legacy Foundation(R) have teamed up to create Parents Quit for Good, a special quit plan for moms and dads powered by the foundation's cutting-edge online program, Become an EX(R). The free program launches just in time to help parents plan their New Year's resolutions to quit smoking.

This new collaboration will be featured in the February, March and April issues of Parents. Because smoking is undeniably one of the hardest addictions to break, it's important that parents know they aren't alone during the quitting process. Starting December 29, parents can visit www.ParentsQuitForGood.com, which offers moms and dads step-by-step assistance in identifying their own smoking triggers, advice on how to get through the day without cigarettes, and opportunities to connect with other parents trying to quit. Whether you smoke a pack a day or only light up occasionally, there's never been a better time to commit to quit.

"Parents is proud to partner with Legacy on this project," said Dana Points, Editor-in-Chief of the magazine. "An overwhelming number of kids are being exposed to secondhand smoke, and quitting is one of the best things a parent can do for the whole family's health. Our hope is this resource will help them pick a quit date and stick to it. Once they reach their quit date, the Web site provides a great place for them to share their daily challenges with other parents who are also trying to give up cigarettes."

Today's announcement coincides with the release of new research from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Julius B. Richmond Center for Excellence and Mississ
