Re: Should I try and get my kids chicken pox?

Not common, but I couldn't be responsible for causing that for my kid or accidentally exposing other people while in the incubation period
That is a good point. The incubation period for chicken pox is long and you can be potentially exposing a lot of people during that time. If you expose a child to chicken pox it is the responsible thing to do to quarantine so people who do not want to be exposed to the disease are not. The incubation period for chicken pox is 14-16 days.
