Here in Georgia, it's usually decent weather but it has been really cold the past month and a half. I cannot get my 13 year old to take the precaution of bundling up while waiting for us to pick her up. (she is a car rider). Many times on a cold windy afternoon, she'll be standing there while her friends where sweatshirts (NO jackets for them!) with her jacket either half hanging off her as she struggles with books, or on her with the front WIDE open exposing her front but not her arms and back. Her friends are always warm, but she keeps getting sick! She claims it is from other kids being sick, but I'm sick of the battle. It's not even that she wants to look cool-she is just not wanting to be bothered! ARGH!
She now has the sore throat, headache, and flu-type symptoms that are going around that everyone seems to have (here, NY, VA). Almost all of her classmates have it too. Even their school district administration has pandemic flu links up because kids are getting sick. HELP!?
