  •  I must say that the only time I did (3+ / 0-)

    stay home from work was when my child was sick.  There was just no way I was going to send him to a child care facility (I had to go back to work when he was 3 months old) or to school when he was sick and needed me to take care of him.  

    Unfortunately, when my son was exposed to strep, he would come down with Scarletina, rather than strep throat, which is highly contagious and necessitates a week of quarantine.  He caught it twice from pre-school exposure before the age of five.  Fortunately, by the time he was old enough for K-12, he was a very healthy child and was seldom sick.  

    Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring and integrity, they think of you. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
