This is your friendly reminder to please keep your sick kids home from school.
I’m begging you.
If you are offended by this – I’m sorry. I know I don’t know your situation.
I know it’s not easy to take off from work or arrange childcare to keep a child home.
But I also know that you don’t know MY situation. If you did, you would understand.
You don’t know that when you are the parent of a medically complex child, a “simple” cold or virus is actually very complicated.
You don’t know that a common cold can turn into a life threatening issue for our child in the blink of an eye.
You don’t know that we may have serious medical procedures scheduled and that it is imperative for our child to stay healthy so that these appointments can happen.
So, please, don’t be offended. Instead try to put yourself in my shoes.
And, before you send your sick child to school, please think of my child.
Thank you. ❤️
