This is why you keep sick kids at home!

This! This is why you don't bring your sick kid to the park. This is why, even if they are feeling and looking better, you keep them home until the doctor says they aren't contagious anymore. Because you decided your child was more important than everyone he came into contact with, my baby is covered head to toe in a blistering rash. You see those blisters on his hands? The same type are on his groin. Saying, "Oh, it's Hand Foot and Mouth disease, but he's not contagious."  when he clearly is? What is WRONG with you? It's HIGHLY contagious. How many other babies and toddlers from that park are stuck inside for the next week or more? How many other children are suffering like my poor little guy? And you know what really sucks? This was supposed to be his first Halloween. He learned to walk just in time and has been asking me to put things in his candy bucket for the last week. Now? We get to stay in, watching the parade of kids six stories below. Yeah, he won't know what he's missing, but I will. When we see you at the playground again, you best beleive I'm going to give you an earful! I hope the other mothers do too! What's WRONG with you?

Yup. Keep the kid inside. Away from fresh air and the Prudential to get better faster

They are allowed back when they are on antibiotics for 24hrs.

Actually fresh air will do them better then being stuck in side and laying in bed all day.

That's actually why I'm so angy. A VERY rashy 3 year old at the park. His mom even said it was HFMD but that it wasn't contagious. It's viral and SUPER contagious while the rash is still open, which his clearly was.

Lmao. I'm sorry, but this made me laugh. You cannot control what happens with other people. Kids need to be out, even when they are sick. And how do you know they hadn't been inside for however long they are supposed to be. Maybe the mom thought they were no longer contagious. Sucks that your kid got sick, but he could have picked it up from anywhere.

I'm not against fresh air for sick kids, I'm against them interacting with other kids while they are contagious. A walk or playing in your own yard is one thing, but the park?
