Regarding minimizing cases between siblings:
|Our experience has been different... ....I think it is probably just a matter of different kids reacting differently.
Just to say, I do to sorta wonder if the whole thing isn't just a little 'myth' or perhaps just the drs own experience. However, enough people have said this that I wonder if there might be some truth to it.
BTW, I'm not saying seperate siblings or be drastic about it, but in our case, at one point I could have said: okay that's enough. He is either going to get chicken pox or he wont. Now I'm goign to enforce boundaries like I would if she had a cold or whatever (ie, stop letting them share the kazoo's).
Anyways, just wanted to put that out there for those that have siblings. It was something that I really didn't have enough time to research and after the fact I wish I had known more. Remember, they are either going to get it, or not. They are either going to get a bad case, regular case, or mild case. Those things we cannot really guess. After the fact, I just reflected that I could have had more control over how much I exposed my son.
Hth's and always wishing for the 'good enough' cases...
