  • I DONT HAVE A PROBLEM AS LONG AS I KNOW THE PERSON. SOMETIMES HEALTHY LOOKING PEOPLE ARE INTERACTING WITH YOUR CHILD THAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW HAVE AN VIRUS. DONT STEROTYPE IF A PERSON HAS A VIRUS THEY ARE MOSTLIKELY AWARE OF THEIR STATUS,ANY PERSON IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD TAKE THE NECCECARY PERCAUSSIONS TO KEEP AN INOCENT CHILD SAFE FORM ANY CASUELTY.MY AUNT IS A MOTHER TO 3 CHILDERN AND ACTIVE GRANDMOTHER TO ALL 6 GRAND CHILDERN.

  • I personally would not.Not out of disrespect or judging people..I would still be friends with someone who was infected. But when it comes to kids..no because she could get cut and kids always have scrapes on them...I would just not take chance.

  • I agree with h2obare. It would be with someone I trust completely, a family member. Actually my father-in-law has Hep C and he raised 4 non-infected kids. He doesn't even allow people to drink after him, so I could trust him.

  • If it was someone that I knew well and trusted then yes I wouldn't have a problem with it.

  • My SO/Son's father is a carrier for Hep C. So, yes, I would...obviously. My son's godfather is also a carrier of Hep C and he has watched my son before also.

  • Because I am a 20yr survivor of this pandemic disease.I wouldn't watch my friends kid(s) unless they totally trust me to be safe with them,as not to exchange bodily fluids with them.Meaning if I got a cut that I would immeditately clean up with a bleach spray,as that is the only chemical that kills the virus,then put on a band-aid.I would tell her kids not to touch my dropped blood because I have bad blood.
