So, next year, your son will be 7 turning 8, and the right age to be in Grade 2, correct? And as far as you know, he doesn't have any development delays or learning disabilities, and should be...

Of course the vaccines are different, because they are different dosages. But they are made of the exact same virus, even the exact same strain of virus. The varicella zoster strain is what they are...

It doesn't matter how people you've talked to refer to the vaccine. If it's a second shot of the same exact same virus meant to help boost your resistance, then a booster is basically what it is. You...

Glad to have the talk!

And you want your son to match his father: match his integrity, his kindness of spirit, his hard work ethic, or what have you. But you don't have to match penises. What are...

They are pushing the booster up here in Canada for sure. I think you guys have it in the US too--it is marketed as a "shingles vaccine". It's a booster shot of the same virus from the chickenpox...

Yes, exactly. Shingles is the chicken pox virus re-surfacing. We used to be able to prevent it (at least in part) by being exposed to the virus frequently, when children or friends got chicken pox.

Yes, my son will get the HPV vaccine. It's not just about protecting him, it's about protecting others. If he doesn't have the virus, he can't pass it on.

What's the issue with the vaccine?

I have a brother too. He is in his late twenties and intact. In his area, about half of the children his age were not circumcised. He was not mocked for his penis. He is happy to have a foreskin and...

You have a baby on the way and you'll have enough stress on your own! I say drop this issue and wait it out. It will go on for a year more, tops. Nobody breastfeeds forever.

Sure, but a constitutional legal battle takes years. Meanwhile, dad now has custody of the kid and will likely get him cut before any court can decide on anything.

Is her alternative school part of the public system? Sometimes alternative schools don't do as much to accommodate disabilities... because they don't have to.

You should do whatever you think he'd prefer. Lots of shots but only one visit, or a few visits but fewer pokes. It depends on what he finds less scary.
