Detailed Description:

The purpose of this efficacy study is to test whether children's home secondhand tobacco smoke exposure (measured by cotinine & nicotine assays, fine particulates and reports of smoking in the home and/or home smoking bans) can be reduced by using custom particle monitors to provide real-time feedback to household residents plus brief advice/praise.
