If you are hoping for wild chicken pox exposure, what is the minimum age at which you would deliberately expose a child?

I would not intentionally expose my child to CP unless they were old enough to articulate to me how they feel. 


While CP is generally a mild illness for healthy children, complications are always a possibility and one must look out for them. I think it would be easier to miss a complication should it arise in a child who cannot talk to is too young to really articulate to you how he/she feels. JMHO

Excellent point, I hadn't thought of that aspect.

i won't do it before my kids are 2.  At that age my kids can usually tell me where it hurts and if they just feel kind of sick or completely miserable.
