Chicken Pox party??

I had never known that existed until tonight. Apparently some parents either take their child to someone's house who has chicken pox and tries to get their kid sick or express mails for some type of item that has been exposed to chixken pox. That way they go through it at a young age.

Would you do such a thing? Have you??

No I haven't and I wouldn't. It's the stupidest thing I ever heard of.

I wouldn't do a pox party but I'd love it if my dd got it at a young age. It's really painful and can be deadly as an adult.

I don't know about a party. I would get it over and done with, but would send my son to my sister's house.

No I would never purposely get my son sick.

some cases of chicken pox can be quite bad and even fatal, though that is not overly comon but it is possible.

also having had children pox is what cause shingles

I think that is on the list of the absolute worst ideas I've ever heard of.

No judgement of any sort, just curious, why?

As a child it is almost 100% harmless.
