Quoting justanothamotha:" Separate thing - what do you mean "research ways to prevent"? As in what specifically are you referencing ... [snip!] ... to do to prevent WC that shouldn't already be standard in trying to prevent other things as well, like bronchitis or the flu."
Not so much one in particular .
There arn't any far out ways I am suggesting like keeping kids home 24/7.Every child gets sick .
The basic cleanliness applies to anyone but also knowing that they could
have a higher chance of getting sick so they would be vigilant Being more aware is really the only 'special' step .There are parents who think that because their child is vaccinated , they don't have to be as careful with certain things but that could put others at risk. Children at school don't always follow hand washing instructions after going to the bathroom or picking food off the ground to eat. No one could expect kids to be as good with those things as they are at home. There really is no sure fire way to make sure your child is safe - vaccinated or not but for any parent, researching modes of transport, signs ,symptoms, stuff like that. Even with all the information floating around in books, on the internet, or even at doctor's offices, some people still believe some out dated stuff...kind of like if you go to bed with wet hair , you will catch a cold.
The reason I put the poll up is so that someone could answer anonymous because even though it seems like it would be an obvious thing, in my line of work I have seen that it isn't . I didn't want it to be about who does or doesn't vaccinate just more so about knowing what kind of research they do.
