When did it become acceptable to send your sick kids to school and get everyone else sick?
My little man got in the car yesterday after school and said "I don't feel good". In the whole five minutes it took us to get home he was running a fever and pale.
Now, rude parents, I'm trying to juggle school and a sick boy. After a rough night I made it to math class (thankfully my dearest was able to come home while I went to class). That's one class I really cannot afford to miss. But tomorrow, well, that's not going be so easy.
I have Sociology at 8 and English at 11. Dearest can only get home for one and I have to choose. I chose English because it's by far the class I struggle the most with. It was a hard decision because I LOVE Sociology. Weird, huh?
To top it off, now my little man is missing school - work that he will have to make up - so when he does get better, he will be unable to enjoy it because he'll be buried under work he missed.
It's common sense people - if your kids are sick keep them home. I'm sure your selfishness has disrupted more than our lives too. Take the time to think beyond your own little world before you decide to give your kid some Tylenol or whatever to reduce their fever and send them to school anyway.
Until next time ~ Kris
