If you have a play date, do you expect the parents to let you know their LOs are sick?

If you have a play date, do you expect the parents to let you know their LOs are sick ?  Does it bother you if they show up with sick kids? Do you inform others if your Los are sick?

I expect them to cancel with sick kids unless they're well past their contagious period. I wouldn't expect them to stay away because of a lingering cough, say. But I'd expect them to say, "Don't mind her cough. It's leftover from her cold last week."

I totally agree. If only everyone were this thoughtful! :/

Exactly. it could be a MAJOR issue if your kid gets sick. maybe they have an immune disorder... or someone they are in contact with does. i find it majorly disrespectful to not inform parents if a child is sick.

this topic hits a bit of a nerve because my cousin is battling leukemia. if he goes to see anybody he has to wear a face mask and he can't get too close to someone. If he gets sick, he could die.

Uh, I expect them NOT to bring sick kids! I'd be super upset!

Yes. I'm very vocal about that from day one. I will respect them and I expect them to do the same.

yes is the answer for me.  I expect to be told.  If its in the contagious stage, I would expect to stay home and that the other parent would want to do the same.  For 2 reasons, first I want to take care of my LO in the comfort of home and 2nd wouldn't want to spread it.

Me too. Out of respect, I would do the same if my child was sick

This...I feel it's common courtesy. I also think it's nice when parents call the day or a couple days after to say "Little Susie came down with a stomach virus just after playing...just a heads up". I know my friends and I do that. I would hope others would, as well...

My 4 yo is also immune suppressed from his chemo treatment so naturally I would expect someone to cancel if their child is sick. Even if my son wasn't I would think people would have enough common courtesy to not bring a sick child. Common sense there.
