I just read an article that said there's no need to keep a sick child home from school or other activities unless the child has a fever or "doesn't feel able to participate". I tend to lean to the over cautious side keeping my kids away from unsuspecting people if they sound terrible, have extremely runny noses, and of course fevers. I know you can't stop people from getting sick just from keeping your kid home but you can keep your kid from getting worse by not exposing them to more possible "bugs" when they're already ill.
So when do you keep them home?
