a mother’s complaint on an Instagram account that asks sick children not to go to school. The mother’s child was forced to be hospitalized because of the flu that was contagious from her classmates.
At the turn of the season, this disease can spread quickly anywhere even in the classroom. This mother’s post asked parents to make a judgment before deciding to send a child to school when the child has a fever.
one of the girls suffered from Down’s Syndrome and the only disorder that had to be avoided was a weakened immune system. Therefore, his body cannot fight common ailments like coughing cold.
“Schools are not places where you can leave sick children. This is not just a matter of other children who are at risk of contracting, but children who have fever also need parental attention and affection.
When your child is sick, you will worry about his condition at school. But you also have to think about your friends, and don’t want your child to infect other people’s children.
Children with fever should go to the hospital because their bodies are small and may not be able to fight infection. ”
citizen’s opinion about sick children do not go to school
Many other parents agree that sick children do not go to school. But some parents are still selfish while still sending their children to school even though they know that the child’s illness can be contagious.
Other parents are desperate and forced to leave their school children even though they are sick, because of personal matters, such as working mothers or single moms.
As parents, when children are sick we should try our best to cure children. For example, taking leave from work and caring for children at home.
