    They are older now so maybe it was allowed in the past and

    Wasn't targeting your post in particular It's been brought up a few times in this thread

    Personally I find the idea of taking a sightseeing tour with a child of people who are sick or suffering absolutely abhorrent. It might be effective but same with beating them into submission and we don't condone that.

    Thanks.. I didn't read through all the threads because there were so many.. just thought I'd offer a suggestion... I'm pregnant with first so I guess I won't know how I'd respond until I'm faced with that challenge 😊

    As a patient I would be MORTIFIED if someone brought their kid in to look at me as an example of what not to do with your life. Besides, how would you even know what cancer is lifestyle related or not?

    I certainly wouldn't consent to this and I'm surprised if it's allowed due to privacy/confidentially.

    As if my own suffering wasn't enough. How humiliating.
    My thoughts exactly!

    If you really wanted to take your kids to the hospital, you could maybe call ahead and ask if there was a patient who may consent to having a chat with your kids. But sick people in hospital wards are not there to be stared at.

    I'm horrified. Feels like people are treating a hospital ward, full of very sick people, in the same way they would a zoo.

    As a cancer nurse I have never heard of this happening thankfully. If someone tried to bring a group of teens around for show and tell I would call security. If someone called to see if I could find them a dying lung cancer patient to chat to I would hang up the phone.

    I have looked after many patients with lung cancer who never smoked in their lives yet they are stigmatised and blamed for their illness. Even the ones who did smoke don't deserve to be blamed for having cancer.

    They stopped pretty quick
    My 4 year old daughter is a patient at a cancer centre. I am horrified that people would ever do this. My mum was also a cancer patient (in remission now). Not on.
