Do you mean because of not having a toilet? (Not seen the article)
What part is wrong?

PinGwyn Fri 27-Nov-20 18:16:15

My 14yo does this most days through choice tbh!

Totally depends on the circumstances and context.

Assuming they were waiting for a COVID test and trying to avoid passing it on to the rest of the family, not unreasonable

JoeCalFuckingZaghe Fri 27-Nov-20 18:18:11

Would have been my dream tbh. Guessing covid related, “until a test was void”? Link to article?

*as a 14yo that is

SquareSausage17 Fri 27-Nov-20 18:18:30

What’s the context? What result is being discussed?

It’s stupid to post a single sentence - nobody can judge how reasonable this is without knowing the background.

I agree OP, it’s totally inhumane to keep
A child totally isolated in their room.

Many 14yo (including mine)would enjoy self isolating like that.

This is from a report about people who were wrongly told they were covid positive because of faulty test chemicals.

Better than spreading it to the whole family, who then passes it on to other people, them to their family, etc etc etc

hmm

I agree posting without context I’d really unhelpful.

@TicTacTwo

Mine was enjoy eating choc all day... Doesn’t mean it’s good for them.

Impossible to tell without any context. If they were waiting for a covid test presumably they had to be at home anyway. Given they were 14 not 4 they might have been more than happy to stay in their room.

I agree, he had to stay home anyway so why not just be in contact with her, he would still have to isolate for the same length of time if she got a positive test. Seems like they didn't really think it through. Unless there's someone seriously vulnerable in the house.

We know a family who's daughter self isolated in her bedroom for 14 days as she had been on holiday with her father and upon returning to the blended family home they needed to protect the other vulnerable daughter.

It hasn't scarred her for life

Literally nowhere in your quote or in the link that another poster helpfully provided, does it say it was done to the child.

At 14 she's perfectly capable of deciding to stay in her room for fear of infecting her family.

I wish my husband had to isolate in our bedroom for 14 days

PurpleDaisies Fri 27-Nov-20 18:25:46

I would have loved to spend two weeks in my room as a fourteen year old.

GailsPlait Fri 27-Nov-20 18:25:51

Assuming it was the result of a covid test not the result of a pregnancy test it's fine. I'd rather stay in my bedroom for four days than pass it on to my family. Imagine how a 14 year old would feel if they passed it to their sibling or parent who then died from it. Not their fault obviously but they'd feel so guilty.

I'd still love to stay in my room with someone bringing me food for two weeks now.

WorraLiberty Fri 27-Nov-20 18:28:42

It was only 4 days anyway, not two weeks.

LabradorGalore Fri 27-Nov-20 18:29:10

Talk about overreaction OP.

Most families are self isolating their teens this way if they can. I’m assuming she still went to the bathroom.

@tigger001

That the know of yet!
