Re: If your child was sick would you take them out to playdate??

No way, i hate when people show up places with sick kids, its very rude and inconsiderate. it is never ok, if your child is sick you stay home or at least away from other people. i have a set of friends who's kids are always sick, they try and tell me its allergies, i have kids too i know a sick kid when i see one and it irritates me, i will leave the place if someone shows up with sick kids, its not worth it to me to stayand chance my kids catching something they can avoid

Re: If your child was sick would you take them out to playdate??

An actual sickness no, but my kids have lots of allergies that lead to sneezing/clear runny noses and I've been reprimanded (by older women) "for taking them out when they are so sick". That's annoying to me. Allergies aren't contagious and it's not like I would let them snot all over somebody.

But for an actual contagious sickness I wouldn't take them. My SIL has 5 kids and I know what it's like for them if one of them gets sick. I wouldn't want to cause that for someone.

I have had to take them to a store when they were sick to pick up medicine and stuff. But not to a toy store!

It depends with me. I'd never take them to a large group, but if it's with just a few kids, I'd call the mothers and ask how they feel about it. If they wanted us to stay home, we would. Most of the time, the kids around here are sick at the same time, so we just get them together anyway.

Comments like that upset me. The last playgroup I went to a mom brought her DS and he was getting over a cold. So my girls got it. Every time they get a little cold it turns into wheezing and the need for puffers or nebulizers. It seems like every few weeks they have something. You can tell it wearing them out. Only one has asthma(which was caused by a virus) but the other two don't deal well. The fact that they were preemies and didn't really get a chance at developing a good immune system just sucks.

I wasn't trying to single you out mama your comment just jumped out at me.

No, I wouldnt want to risk other kids getting sick and I would want the other mamas in the play group to do the same thing in return!

No.. I try to keep my kid away from sick people so why would i bring her out when she was sick to get others sick.. however.. lol

Miranda has a cough and a bit of a runny nose. A friend called me yesterday to see if I wanted to go to the park with her. I wanted to get out of the house, but i let her know that miranda might be catchy.. she said it was not a problem so we went.

however miranda has had this for about a week now, so I'm not too worried about her being really catchy anymore. But i think if it was a playgroup with lots of people then i just wouldn't go.. but we were mostly at her house, so i told her she was sick so she could make up her mind about it.
