    Default Wwyd- party

    My DS4 has a birthday party today at a play centre. He has come down with a cold in the last couple of days but is his usual self. I'm not sure whether to take him or not as he's been so looking forward to it but at the same time not wanting to make anyone else sick. What would you do? Appreciate any feedback thanks

    Are we talking a minor head cold with a bit of a runny nose?

    My kids both have a slight head cold at the moment. No fever, no cough, but I'm constantly wiping noses. We haven't changed any of our plans. As they are otherwise well and happy, and slight colds are just a part of life IMO.

    If we're talking, fevers, miserable kids, green snot all over your child's face, clearly unwell children, then stay home..

    Personally I'd go ahead.

    It's a cold, he's excited and play centres are a cesspit of germs anyway.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. Yes I'm only talking minor cold, cough, some snot. No fever.

    Minor cold - I would send my DS, but not if his nose was really runny/if he was coughing consistently.

    Does your DS cover his mouth when he coughs? If not, I'd consider sitting this one out. Open mouthed coughing will have him frowned upon for spreading germs.

    Hmm he does need reminding. I guess the coughing will increase too when he starts running around.

    I'd take DS and let him have fun with his buddies. When you get home get him in the shower/bath straight away to keep nice and warm maybe some Vicks and cough mixture just it keep on top of it

    I would be really angry if you turned up to my child's party with your sick son. Do something fun at home with your son, there will be plenty of other parties.

    I would (and have) check with the parents of the birthday child. Some parents we know would be upset if we didn't come due to a sniffle, others would be upset if we did come.
