A parent commented on how she kept her two kids home one day from daycare because they were healthy. Huh? A little backwards, don’t you think?
She was upset because a flu was going around and children were still attending daycare with symptoms. Now, while it may be an inconvenience, sick children need to stay home! Not only for the fact that they feel miserable and don’t want to be dragged around, but they are exposing others to getting ill. And let’s face it, folks, a childcare setting is a germ’s best friend.
So let’s stop looking at sick days in such a negative manner. It’s a fact, children will get ill and need that time off to get healthy again. It benefits everyone involved in the end.
