When do you feel *obligated* to tell a conventionally-vaccinating friend about your decision to vaccinate selectively?
I've been around other moms who've joked offhandedly about "those mothers who don't believe vaccination works" and I just change the subject.
But a new situation has come up. Another mom and I carpool our kids to preschool. I haven't told her that my kid isn't vaccinated. But lately she has been talking more about vaccinations. In addition to her preschooler, she also has a baby, so the subject comes up more. I don't know her well enough to know if she would want to stop carpooling if she learned about this issue. I would really miss the carpool (and I would miss seeing my mom-friend every day).
(I am planning to do some vaccinations. We just haven't done them yet, which is why I posted in this forum.)
How have you talked to other moms about this? What did you say? What reaction did you get?
