When does a child need a sick day?
from The New York Times
The hardest thing about the is-my-kid-too-sick-to-go-to-school decision may be when parents have to make the call: It’s usually during the family’s tightly orchestrated morning routine. “It’s kind of hard to make that judgment in the morning,” said Dr. Timothy Shope, an associate professor of pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, who is the co-editor of the American Academy of Pediatrics book "Managing Infectious Diseases in Child Care and Schools: A Quick Reference Guide." "Sometimes very well-intentioned parents have only a short window to make a judgment before they have to activate their day, get the child on the bus," he said. And those parents may be feeling pressure to get to their own jobs.
