On the way to school with dcs, we saw a Y1 child being sick into some bushes. We walked on, and a few minutes later, the mum and child caught us up and carried on into school, where the child was dropped off.
I wasn't sure whether to say anything or not. I'm not keen on ds being exposed to infection but OTOH schools are rife with bugs and I don't want to make an enemy of the mum-it's a very small town and it will be obvious it's me as no other adults witnessed the vomiting.
I haven't done anything yet, but am feeling vaguely guilty.
I'd have told the teacher. I wouldn't care if the mother knew it was me or not, I'd also tell her to her face.
That child should not be in school if it was being sick. I'm sure you won't be thanking her if your child caught this bug just in time for half term would you? Neither would anyone else. It's irresponsible parenting and many parents would thank you for letting the teacher know.
Well I got some dirty looks at toddler group last week for taking my DS who did a slight puke after eating some cake. It wasnt a sickness bug - he has had a bad chest which unfortunately he's susceptible to come the cold (had pneumonia as a baby) and had coughed up some phlegm. Dont think anyone believed me but hey ho, everyone has a right to feel concerned about seeing a child vomit then sent into a group of other children. So yes, I'd mention it to the teacher and just ask for them to keep any eye on that child.
