    For what it's worth: roseola is (usually) a polka dot rash - looks like you sprinkled pepper all over the child - arms, legs, torso, back, neck, face.... but the dots are pink not black. like you took more »

    Medford, I think you can listen to your daughter tell you she doesn't want to go, she just wants to " stay home all all day" and then after you listen to her once, you say "Well, we are going to go pl more »

    Totally agree you can't ask the teachers to intervene.  But I think I would say that we'll be at one but we can't go to both. Let the parents figure out most aren't going to put up with their crazines more »
