Later that day, she posted again that her child did well and that because other parents brought kids with colds, she didn't feel bad bringing her child.

I responded to her and let her know that what she did was irresponsible and if MY kid got sick because she brought her sick kid to church, KNOWING that it was contagious, I'd be pissed. I don't care that "other" parents' kids had "colds". Other friends/family posted to her equally upset that she chose to risk others, so I know that I'm not alone when I say that it's just plain wrong to do that.

Once again, we're not talking about mom taking kid to the pharmacy because she HAS to, but church? She could miss one day. I'm sure God would forgive someone for missing in this case
Yeah - I have a special hatred for puke bugs. We just had one & have virtually been home almost non-stop for 2 weeks - by the time it got through everyone. When I did have to go out, I didn't take my kids.
