Iam batting around this idea, and I was wondering what other moms or parents think. I keep a kid after school, her parents work and she's often among other people out and about with kids and stuff. She's had this ridiculous cough for at least two weeks now, and was sick with a cold for 10 days or better before that, and then was sick with something else a few weeks prior to THAT. So I know her little immune system is taxed. Plus she's a girl, you know how touchy feely girls are... She's in all sorts of activities, plus school, and her parents take her our with them to social gatherings and taverns quite often. Okay, thats in the back of your mind. I have a two year old. And with this swine flu thing going around (its in our county and the neighboring one where we do our grocery shopping) I am wondering if I should ask them to find some where else for her to go for a little while. Iam really honestly torn between over reacting, and protecting my child. I will say this, if the girl were mine I'd have her out of school the rest of the year or until things cool down. I'd homeschool instead. Without being a total tool or fanatic, does it seem reasonable? Maybe I should add too that earlier this year I really felt like the Lord was telling me to stay out of the cities for the year because of sickness. I blew it off as just me being influenced by some other outside thing. But I stocked up on some hand sanitizer at the time anyway... and now here's this happening... I suppose that makes me sound even MORE ridiculous. *sigh* I wish there was a book with all the "where to draw the lines" Between protecting your child and being a freak.
