I have five children ranging in age from 14 years to almost three years. The oldest 2 have had the chicken pox vaccine but the youngest three are completely unvaccinated. A family friend recently had a case of shingles and her unvaccinated 14 year old daughter has contracted chicken pox, presumably from her mother.
I'm trying to decide whether or not I should expose my children to her daughter in the hopes of giving them chicken pox. Please give me your opinions and why or why not you would choose to purposely give your children chicken pox.
