As the cold/cough season is upon us, I would like everyone's opinion on dealing with it.
I know most of us allow children to stay if they only have a cold or cough. That being said, I have a parent that has been casually sending me texts, after drop off, that she's sent cough syrup, honey, Tylenol, Vicks etc etc, as the child has been coughing all night or has a sore throat or some other ailment. So she's asking if I can give them to the child as needed.
I'm just thinking that if they need all this stuff, maybe they shouldn't be in care that day. I don't have time to be rubbing Vicks, administering cough meds and such, as we are a busy bunch.
What are your thoughts?
