Vaccinations and basic parenting
Mommy at the Mommy Blawg gives her take on the latest vaccination controversy: i.e. some kids don't get them. She has a really good point about the poor journalism involved in writing the story. She has another good point about the inconsiderate nature of some parents. Chas Rich has another tale of a selfish parent who seemed determined to expose her sick child to the general public. Really people, sometimes you just have to think about others before you do something.
As far as vaccines go, as with anything else, educate yourself before deciding whether you are going to have your children vaccinated. And that means looking at both the pro-vaccination side as well as the anti-vaccination side.
