I had to laugh at the quote about just because parents don't want advice is not a reason to remain silent. When our parents raised us, it's a cliche, but the times were different. I doubt that most...

I'm sure others will be along with more info and insight, but I'd say it depends a bit on the vaccine and the ages of your children. Obviously you're going to have to talk it through a lot more with...
