You're not going to come over to MY house and treat my kid....

I took my DS to the ER because he was running a fever for 2 days (101.3) and he was pulling on his ears (which led me to believe he had an ear infection). We got to the ER and they checked him out, said that he didn't have an ear infection but instead he has Tonsillitis. He gave us a prescription for Amoxicillian and sent us home without real concern, saying that he wasn't contagious and should be better soon.

So we came home and I have been giving him meds.

Landlords kids (who are very annoying but we put up with them) wanted to come over to play this morning, so DH let them in. They have been over here since 8 this morning and it is now 3pm. The littlest one goes home to eat, returns, and says "Mom told me to telll you to stay away from Dylan because he's sick.

Me: He's not contagious. You can't catch what he has.
Her: Mom said you can so she told us not to get close to him.
Me: He isn't contagious, you're not going to treat him like he is contagious, or you can leave.

Now apparently I am overreacting. -_- What would you have said?

I probably would have addressed the mother directly. I'm not sure if my message would get relayed the way I wanted it to through children.

When my kids are sick, contagious or not, I tell my kids' friends that I'm sorry but my child is sick and needs to rest. I also let them know once my child is feeling better, they can come over then. I think the other mom needs to mind her own business!! She doesn't know what illness your child has unless you told her or her kids and they relayed the info to her.

I would have said if your mother is concerned that Dylan is sick, you all should go/stay home.

If the mom was that worried why send them over?

Your son should be resting not playing with other kids. Contagious or not he's sick. Your dh is an idiot for letting them in, in the first place.

 I wouldn't have given them the option. I would have asked them to go home.
