When?

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.

  1. Bummer! I hope he feels better soon. I always ask that question. We have had so much going around. I was literally scrubbing my house every other day. It was ridiculous!!

    PS Don't stress to bad, most teachers understand (not all but most) especially for the students who are at school to learn (what a concept) :P

  2. Most parents aren't intentionally being rude sending their children to school sick. A lot of illnesses are contagious before the child even feels sick (you didn't know your son was sick when he went to school but he probably passed the germs around). I know it's annoying though. I've had kids home off and on for the last few weeks. I hope your little guy feels much better soon and you can get back to your normal schedule.

  3. Love it! I completely agree that parents should be more aware when sending their children to a PUBLIC school. If your kid is running a fever, they need to stay home. period.

I love your comments and I read them all. I'm not very good at replying to them though. It's one of my many downfalls. I hope you'll leave some anyway!
