In brief: Minimal
The second hand smoke, a much smaller concentration than directly inhaled smoke from a cigarette, will coat the interior lining of the lung and little will be exhaled.
The solution: don't smoke around your kids (go outside) or quit altogether for the sake of your health (do you want to be sickly or perhaps die before your kids grow up?).
