likebugs Posted May 10, 2011 Share Posted May 10, 2011 My kid is in her first year of school and has had quite a few human viruses. I have been warned by other parents that kids get sick alot when they start school or daycare. So anyways my dad called and asked how everybody is doing and I told him that Estelle is sick again. I get a response that is so ignorant, that I am at a loss for words. "It is those bugs that are making her sick." My kid doesn't even get those stomach illnesses that everyone else complains about, never has. Not so much as a squirt. I know that people can get salmonella from all kinds of creatures, but I am sure that my creatures have been contained, and only eat what I give them, I never feed them meat anyway. Does anyone know of some documentation that states that insects don't go around giving people colds and flu. I don't bring my bugs all over the place and have only let a few people touch them anyway, not that it is hard to keep people away from them. I am not even going to ask if bugs are making my kid sick, as I am sure it is nonsense. I am just a bit angry that it has been mentioned to me, and need to vent. Edit: I was just thinking that this topic might not be in the right category, and don't know what to do about it even if it isn't. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
