I suppose this is more of a rant than a question. School has been in session hardly a month and already my daughter has had two head colds. She has a tough immune system and rarely got sick at her old school, but ever since I transfered her to this new school, she's been sick! Dr says it's not allergies either. I helped out in her classroom last week and noticed several kids - and teachers - with snotty noses, sneezing, etc. I work, and it sucks to have to burn a sick/vacation day to stay home with her when she's sick, but I'd rather do that rather than have her pass her germs onto someone else. I wish others had the same courtesy!
Which leads me to another question: Can you give kids Airborne? Just curious - I know I can pump her full if vitamin C and it will probably do the same trick.

The school will let you bring them, as long as they don't have a fever and are not vomiting and don't have diarrhea. So alot of the blame has to be put on the schools. Also , Parents don't want to take off work. Also the more days a child misses the more they get behind and possibly held back. Everyone gets colds! You can't expect a child not to get sick with 20+ kids sitting in a small room breathing on each other! If you keep a child home everytime they get a little sniffle they would never be in school. It's part of being a parent!
