Edit 1 Thanks everyone for your advice! Sorry I didn't get to respond to everyone individually I've been busy cleaning floors while the house is airing out and wiping everything down:) I decided to lay them a blanket down outside in the sun and put a few things out there to keep them busy but resting at the same time. There was coloring books/colors, army men,their little leap frog computers,a tunka truck,and a tea party set(I gave them fruit loops and little marshmallows and water to have a tea party with). I let them stay out there for about 30 mins. They got their fresh air and are now laying around the house watching cartoons. Again thanks ladies for your advice..it helped me alot!



Okay I should probably already know the answer to this question but I don't since I've had no mom to show me how to be a mom. And my mom is not someone a mother wants to be like. My three kids (5,4&2) are all sick:( my oldest has the flu and the two little ones have a cold and is on medicine to prevent them from getting the flu. Also my youngest tonsils are swollen pretty bad,we are waiting on a referral to the ears nose and throat doctor about having them removed.

Now to the question, today is warm out when it has been nothing but rain and cold weather here lately causing the kids to stay in all the time. Would it hurt to let them out side for a little bit to play and get a little fresh air? Or is it best that I keep them in until everyone is feeling better?

Maybe not strenuous playing, but a little fresh air couldn't hurt if it's warm.

I wouldn't.  They need to rest.

fresh air can actually help. Just dont over stress them. a little play, then soup and snuggles.

I think you can absolutely let them play outside.  Fresh air is always good.

I know how you feel, my mother is the same way.

To answer your question if they want to go out I would let them, just dress them accordingly to the weather. And open all the windows, it'll let the fresh air in and germs out.

Hope they feel better soon.

Fresh air doesn't hurt and they will be tired after playing so they wil nap pretty well after. As long as they aren't running around coughing, I would let them play for a bit.

The one with the flu, I would keep in bed. However, the other two, I think it would be okay to have some quiet play outside. No running around, though.

I just hate having them cooped up in the house all the time. I know if I don't get out of the house it makes me feel horrible.
