It would be hard for mums who have to work, but I know some use childcare just to get a break. They shouldn’t be sending their sick kids just so they can have a nap or go out for lunch etc. Anywhere with people is a potential situation to pick up something. School, public transport, the supermarket. It’s unavoidable unless you live in a bubble. I’m assuming the older kids who get sick less often have built up their immune systems from getting sick more often when they were younger.
