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

Just wondering what other people do.

If you child was OBVIOUSLY sick, like hacking up a lung, would you still take them out to play with other children ie. like to a community center play group??

No. I got really tired of being exposed to sick people who should have been at home getting well (both co-workers and customers) when I worked in retail. No way am I going to do that to somebody else.

Nope! I know first hand how quickly bugs spread from child to child! I had my 5 w/ my friends' 4 and my youngest started kinda throwing up a little but he's still kinda babyish so I didn't think it was like vomitting! kwim? Anyway, by the next afternoon the 2 older than the baby got it and were vomitting all night! The next morning I was up getting sick and found out that Sunday and Monday my friends' kids were sick too. They recovered by the next weekend and I had my friend's DD again but now she had diarrhea which she hadn't had prior. I made SURE to wash my hands really well and my kids & I all still got it the next day.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! My kids are the type to catch anything that another kid gets. If I went somewhere and another kid was coughing like that, I would leave immediately. I would never ever ever take my child out while he was sick, both for his comfort and those around us.

No way!!

I have experienced that opposite side of this (others bringing sick kids to my house, and not telling me)! It SUCKS.

I have a son who has a lot of health problems, and gets sick VERY easily and very extreme. No way!

See that's what I thought.

I would also NEVER bring the kids out when they are even remotely sick.

But Public Health called today and apparently theres been a whooping cough outbreak in our neighborhood because of some parents who brought their son to the community center when he had it.

Now my DD has it too and I think Ephie is getting it.

I wondered where she could have picked it up from.

Why would people do that it's so irresponsible.
