  • because he is being exposed to everything now...my son just started prek this year also and was never sick before. He has been sick 3 times this year and was sick for about 3 wks this last time...but its kinda good because they are building their immunity. (thats what the ER told me anyways)

  • Um cause he's around other kids now and his immune system needs to get stronger. The immune system is like muscles it is VERY week if NOT used and the only way the immune system is used is by fighting off virus and germs. No it's never fun having a sick child, but it's good for them

  • if they didnt get it in preschool then they would just be exposed to it when they started kindergarten or 1st grade

  • B/c parents send there kids to pre school while they are sick, and then everybody else has to suffer and get sick, PARENTS if your kids are sick stay home with them!!! I work at a pre school and its sad they give them tylenol, hoping it will make the fever stay down the whole time they are in pre school!!!

  • That's because other parents are too lazy to find a way to keep their little germ carriers home.
