Very low‐ to low‐certainty evidence suggests that interventions to modify the smoking behavior of parents to reduce exposure of their children to tobacco smoke may improve asthma symptoms and reduce emergency room visits for asthma. However, results for these outcomes were not consistent across all studies. Available data for other outcomes are limited. In addition, most studies were underpowered and meta‐analyses could not be performed. Consequently, no conclusions can be drawn regarding effects of interventions to reduce a child's exposure to tobacco smoke on the child's health.
