I took so much time off work with DS1 that each year I ran out of leave and my pay was docked. We didn't have much slack in our budget, and it hurt. But it's one of the costs of having children; when they're sick someone has to care for them.
And given how strict I was about my own child, you can imagine how furious I was when others sent theirs in to infect him!

Sad thing is people do not care how bad a common cold can be until it nearly kills one of there own same with gastro so many think its just am inconvenience but for many it's much more
But every time this comes up on bh people say that if th ey don't work they don't get payed and that not realising that is selfish but well if a days pay is more important than a kids life then I guess that's a difference in priorities

This is one of my pet hates especially the last two nights!!! I was having car trouble the other day & spent a bit of time in my sons childcare waiting for my DH to be my night in shining armour when I saw & overheard a parent hand off their sick kid to the carers telling them what the dr had said the previous afternoon about administering antibiotics. This kid was clearly sick & should not have been there & another parent had said that their kid was fine as the day before she had a temp of 40 😳
So the last two days have been pure hell as my son is terribly sick & has croup and I am 9 months pregnant😡 great way to get ready for the birth of my second child.
It was heart breaking to see my normal vibrant child limp & lifeless because of a few selfish people!
I know that he got sick from childcare cause no one else he has been in contact with is sick.

We have literally had 3 weeks of constant illness here. First gastro brought home from daycare that went through the whole family and this week the flu also brought home from daycare. DS is 6 months and has only been going 3 weeks. I work 4 days a week and DP works nights and we have no family to help. We would never send the kids if they were obviously sick and we're on a super tight budget.

[QUOTE=ICanDream;7126866]I was shocked by this too, I picked DD up really early one day and this poor child was lying on a bean bag looking miserable. The carer commented that they had hoped when the door opened it was the child's parent, they'd rung 2hrs prior and still no sign of them. Felt so sorry for the child, they clearly weren't well.[/QUOTE
you would be surprised at how many parents wont even answer the phone to begin with or when you call them at work they are never there/at lunch/in a meeting it is always the same ones we have had parents even answer the call then turn their mobiles off to restrict contact and not take calls at work it is very disturbing that some parents juts dont care

What would happen if these parents ignored phone calls and it was emergency and they had to be taken to hospital???
