Hello all, I am a mom of three looking to expose my children to the chicken pox so that they can develop a natural immunity. I live in central Jersey, but am willing to travel. Please help!!

My friend's daughter's dad had the pox on Monday . . . we are waiting to see if Erin gets it, and if she does, we want to spread it around for awhile.

We are going to Florida on Sept 6th to see my grandparents, so I can't bring an infected/exposed kid there . . . we would love to keep the pox going until after we get home, so we can get it over with then!

Hi. I'm new to this webpage, and I also just joined the yahoo group for NJ chicken pox. Is there anyone who knows anyone with a current case of the chicken pox in the NY area? I would also be willing to travel. I am having trouble with my school, and it would be so much easier to just have my daughter actually get the chicken pox. Thanks for any help I can get!

Sorry, we had it in the Spring! Didn't even think to post on here to "share" as my kids felt so miserable. Definintely not in the mood to party.

Dear ladies,
I'm the Family columnist for a national magazine. My February 2009 column is on chickenpox parties. I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts on why you're choosing to have your children catch it "wild" versus receiving the vaccine.
If you're willing to go down on the books (i.e. quoted by your first and last or just first name) then feel free to contact me directly. If you have an opinion but don't want to be named, that's fine too. I can use your screen name off this forum. I look forward to hearing your replies. Take care.

Thank you for the link to the Yahoo group. I just requested to join it! I came here specifically looking for a local pox-party, so I hope that will give me the info I need.
