So this past weekend was Easter. My whole family got together and had a cook out. My one niece and her family were not coming because her three kids were sick. Well they all ended up coming anyways. So all the kids were running around and playing and there are her kids coughing up a lung with runny noses. Am I wrong for feeling like she should've left them at home?

Not all coughs are contagious

You're right they should have been left at home.

It would take  a special circumstance for me to excuse sickness at a family event. Stay home.

The sickness will go away, the memories made that day will last forever. Don't obsess about it.

The same also applies to adults who aren't feeling well.

If the kids were running around and not feeling sick it probably isn't anything to worry about. They are probbly just getting over something.

I feel they should have stayed home.  It's so rude for them to take the chance with everybody else's health.

I wouldn't have attended if my kids were that sick.

No. Unless they had a fever vomiting and diarrhea then yes I would keep them home. Just a runny noise and a cough no I wouldn't keep them home.
