    Hugs, I have very active little boys who arent any less active because they're sick so I understand, can you take him for a walk or perhaps build a cubbyhouse inside? Or is there somewhere outside yoy can kick a ball around or something with him?

    It's all well and good to suggest rest but when you have high energy children who wont slow down because they're sick, its really not possible.

Just because other parents are inconsiderate doesn't mean you should be to, maybe if they hadn't taken their sick child out then yours might not be sick.
    If a child has a cold I don't see the harm going to an empty playground. It's not like it's a sterile environment to begin with.

    True. But by the sick child going and putting their snotty hands everywhere they are spreading germs ready for he next child to pick up. Think of the poor other parent who may have to take time off work down the track.

    I take my snotty (no fever) kids outside to play all the time. With them in daycare they have a runny nose 6mths of the year.

    Open parks and ovals are great as are small playgrounds that are generally empty. Sunlight is great at killing bacteria and viruses on things.

    I think this is a great idea, pack a picnic lunch, a couple of balls and get fresh air and sunshine (if the suns out where you are), maybe he'll fall asleep in the pram or car in the way home and get some rest. But I'd probably avoid a playground, in addition to spreading the germs he already has, I get concerned that with a lower immune system due to already being sick, kids may pick up an even worse bug.

    Then spend the afternoon baking, playing with play dough, watching a movie or reading books.

    With that reasoning no child should ever go to a playground. Plenty of kids are carriers for things worse than a cold.
