…I was not a bad mother to put my sick kids to bed with their fevers and NOT Tylenol them. My family ran incredibly high fevers, even as an adult I have scared doctors silly with fevers in excess of 105.5. So I was never the parent who grew terrified when my kids ran fevers. I was serene and not alarmed when their little heads burned at 102 through 104. I kept them hydrated and let them sleep.
And it might be why they (1)got over things faster and (2) didn’t spread the crud around.
Because yes, you idiots, popping shotgun remedies including pills to kill fever and going off to work/school passes the flu around MORE.
