It is in the nature of the majority of parents to do everything in their power and more, in order to protect their children, especially a newborn child. However, several people have seemed to forget how their children would be acting and behaving when they were just little children.
Some unpleasant situations with kids
You might have experienced a confusing situation when your friends (married and with children) say that their children have a cold, however, it is nothing major, and they will be coming over to visit you and your child.
One more common unpleasant occurrence is when you take your child or children to play in a park, and then you see few kids playing with your children who have a cough and also green snot running down from their nose at full speed.
There may be times when you are having a dinner with another family and they come over with children who are either sick or recovering from an illness, which is still spreadable by them to your children.
In this situation, the first thought in your mind is definitely to tell the parents that if your child is not well, is sick or is recovering, please do not come to a public park to play and make the other kids sick, stay at your home and most importantly, do not kiss or hug my children.
Some people might be thinking that the parents are just simply being overprotective. Just think about it, if your kid does get sick, then you will have to stay home and take care of your child, missing out on work and other important obligations.
