LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – If you think children who live with smokers are at least not exposed as much at night when they go to bed, a new study indicates that second hand smoke hangs over a house and is especially a risk when kids with asthma are sleeping. 

The study at Cincinnati Children's Hospital followed about 200 children and found that when kids are exposed to secondhand smoke, they have difficulty falling asleep, trouble breathing during sleep and increased sleepiness during the daytime.
