A skilled statistician can make a stat say anything they want it to.
    Agreed regarding stats

    I agree with this. You can only do what you can do. IMO, responsible parents vax their kids, and make every effort to try to keep their kids home if they know their kids are sick* They also teach their kids proper handwashing, and teach them to cover their mouth when they sneeze or cough, and how to blow their nose in a tissue rather than wiping their nose with the back of their hand (obviously some of this is dependent on age - my five year old can blow his nose in a tissue - my five month old cannot.) Beyond that, there isn't much you can do, which I'm okay with. I only get mad when people don't even do the things that they CAN do, like vaccinations.



    *Having said that, as a working parent I admit that I have taken my kid to daycare when he was sick because I didn't have other childcare options available. I called my daycare provider and we talked through her guidelines first. She will take a child that has a cough or a runny nose; she won't take one with a fever as that indicates that he is likely actively contagious, and also he probably feels really crummy and would be far more comfortable at home. Even when he has a cough I try to keep him home and just work from home when I can, but that hasn't always been an option. I imagine it's that much harder for working parents who don't have the ability to work from home, so I do understand that side of it, but hope that parents try to keep their kids home when they can.

    This is a terrible idea. It would open the doors for parents to sue over way to many things. What each of us considers due diligence is different. I consider taking kids that are sick and contagious out into public to be a bad idea, but I understand why it has to be done in certain situations. As a teacher I get kids all the time that are visually sick, and the parents think they are in the clear because they brought down their kids fever with tylenol.

    As a parent with 2 kids totally vaxxed (DD1 and DS4) and 2 kids that had severe reactions to vaccines I am understanding of both sides.

When I was pregnant with Robbie they found that I had NO antibodies to CP so I had the shots. When I was pregnant with Bailey, again no antibodies and they had proof that I had the vax... I gave up on going through a second round of the shots because it was obvious that my body did not react to having CP but I am super careful to make sure that if I am in contact with anyone with CP to limit contact with others.
    That sucks! Once was enough for me.
