You best friends with them then? You know there work bosses? And work contracts etc? You know there personal life like its your own??
Sorry and i do agree and think sick kids should stay home but im just saying its easy to say that when its not your child.
No, I wouldn't say we are best friends. But I have known their family for almost 10 years. And yes, I do know their work situation too, its a family run business, which the Mum doesn't even work for - but her FIL is her DH's boss. The business is actually run from her in-law's house and yard, about 500m down the road from their house. She has 2 younger children whom she is a full time SAHM Mum to.
What kind of "personal life" situation would prevent you from keeping a clearly very unwell child at home from school? What situation would MAKE you send your sick child to school so that they can infect the other 18 children in the class? Particularly when you are only spending the day at home? WHICH I happen to know that she did cos she had an SA Water worker coming out to look at something on their property and he could only tell her that he could be there between the hours of 10am and 2pm... so she HAD to be at home during that time. These are her words from that morning at school, before I stayed for reading and encountered her DS only half an hour later when he came into the reading room to read his reader to me.
I'm sorry but we are going to have to agree to disagree here. I can't honestly see what is SO important that you have to send your poor child to school with more snot than I have ever seen and coughing phlegm violently. ESPECIALLY when I know what the Mum was up to that day.
And yes, it is easy to say that because it isn't my child. Because I would NEVER send them to school like that. My child comes first, and their health and everyone elses health in that classroom is important to me. I have taken numerous days off work without pay so I can stay home to look after my sick children, and they haven't even been as sick as this little boy clearly was.
So now am I allowed to have the opinion that the child should NOT have been at school and should have been sent home?
