My youngest was sick last night and was supposed to be going to nursery today.
I know you are supposed to wait 48hrs before sending them back in when they have been ill, so I called my work and told them I can't come in.
My youngest woke up this morning (after a lying in longer than usual) and she's absolutely fine! (typical eh! lol)
Anyway, I guess the question is, do you always abide by the 48hrs rule? What do parents do if their work isn't very understanding? What if they can't really afford to miss a days work? What if your child is absolutely fine the morning after like my daughter is? I almost feel guilty for having the day off because she is now obviously not ill at all.
Are parents in a bit of a catch 22 situation when it comes to this?
