Stay home if you're sick!
#21
I understand both sides to this complaint.  As a parent, I really hate being out somewhere with the kids and hearing another child hack and wheeze and see their yellow drippy nose...knowing full well that if my children haven't been getting enough sleep or eating properly or have just gotten over a sickness...in a few days time (maybe a week or two) it'll be my child who is hacking and wheezing and dripping.  On the other hand, try being a parent who has been cooped up with sick children for weeks (because for some reason they hardly ever all come down with something at the same time)...and they're all going crazy because they haven't been able to get their wiggles out...so you risk it and take them to the nearest indoor giant hamster tube playground...knowing that your kids are probably gonna give their cooties to all the other kids there...but it postpones your losing yer sanity just one more day.  Fortunately, my kids are pretty healthy...and the stuff they do come down with doesn't last long and is easily treated at home.


I second the coughing into one's elbow.  I teach my kids to do that...because kids don't run to wash their hands every time they cough.
