What would you do if you were invited in a children’s party but your child is sick with chicken pox? I’m pretty sure you will choose to stay home rather than getting other children get infected with the virus.
But that wasn’t the case with my friend. Instead she brought her daughter who had chicken pox to the party. The other parents were surprised to see her.
The worst part was when the kids were playing “The Boat is Sinking”. Kids were grouping and hugging each other. The girl with the chicken pox was there hugging the other kids who haven’t had the chicken pox virus yet. I couldn’t help to see the parents feeling a little bit dismayed with what happened.
Medical experts would advice parents to keep their kids at home especially when they have viral infections. Some would even require isolation so that others won’t be contaminated with the disease.
I don’t know what’s inside my friend’s mind that day. All I can hear about was her daughter really wanted to join the party and she can’t do anything about it. If you were one of the parents in that party, what do you think you would do?
