Do you take your kids outside when they're sick?

my Dd has a 102 temp today and she's begging me to go to the duck pond. She's only 2, but she's sick enough that she hasn't been off the couch much. I never remember going outside sick as a kid cept one year on the fourth of July when I had the flu.

Do I just take her when she gets better? Or push her in the stroller there sick?

  • If it's not a hot day, and she'll be in the stroller so she's not wearing herself out, fresh air certainly won't hurt her. If it is hot, though, I'd skip it, since she already is having difficulty maintaining her body temp.
