Possibly. Do you think DD's teacher was being 'off' or do you think I'm oversensitive?

I would have sent her aswell tbh

I sent dd (age3) to nursery last week with a bad cold and was a bit hmm about whether I was right to or not but when we got there they all had it anyway wink

Do not waste your time tryinmg to read anything into it. It is a nothing comment, meaningless as the teacher will have been thinking about several other things.

I think you're being hugely over sensitive tbh! grin Colds are an occupational hazard of being a teacher - but please teach her to cover her mouth when she coughs/sneezes! grin

I think it was just a throw-away casual comment with no great meaning.

''If I kept DD off every time she had a cold she would never be in school.'' This is my thinking exactly.

Maybe teacher is fed up of coughing children but thing is you are quite right, if parents kept kids at home during cold season she'd never have a full class!

Saw a dad yesterday walking up to school at home time with his son who is in ds's class. Boy was very energetic, heading footballs and running around - but dad said he was off school with a cold. I was rather surprised esp. when dad said the older boy had had a week off with a really nasty cold so the little one kind of deserved a bit of TLC. hmm

a cold is one thing,if they are well enough in themselves - but you actually sent her to school with the runs??

Dont worry, you can be standing next to someone at the supermarket, on the tube or in a meeting and you end up catching a cold. My mother (an old reception school teacher) NEVER catches a cold EVER. She says it is down to the strong immunity she got teaching kids over the years.
