No I will not watch your kid.

It seems some nasty stomach bug is going around our neighbourhood. I was sick all day yesterday and my neighbour was home with her dd. As soon as school got out, her dd was out playing untill well after 8:30pm. She just texted me asking if I could keep her LO, because she can't afford to take another day off.

I feel bad saying no, but I'm not feeling well and I don't believe in letting my kid play all night after not going to school.

If your child stays home from school because of an illness, do you still let them play or attend extra curricular activities?

No. If they stay home, they're in for the day.

I don't know what I would do...I guess it would depend on how well I knew the neighbor and if I liked her or not. I probably would just watch the little one if that meant the mom keeping her job though. Sounds like they are struggling...

I don't know... Maybe she thinks if she stays home from the get go, she won't need to leave work to pick her dd up from school!
