    Unfortunately, that is exactly true. The stats for GenY and GenZ on infectious disease have not been good.

    Largely due to the “Lysolization” of the world.

    Or they will get sick later in life.

    Not much space between the houses.

    my grandsons were never sick until mom put them in a Mother’s Day Out program once a week, then they were sick all the time, but on the positive side, by the time they started school they were as germ ridden as all the other kids and were seldom sick.

    That’s so true! The ones who are in daycare when younger.

    And I hope this comic doesn’t start the stupid debate over which is better, daycare or being at home. Both options have their merits and downfalls, and I think it truly depends on the situation.

    I caught all of those childhood diseases at school.
    My advice… if there is a vaccine for it, get them vaccinated.

    SUSAN NEWMAN: I remember a Margaret Mead lecture in the late ’40s on social change. She pointed out that “baby sitter” a recent term because earlier the term was “Grandma” or “Aunt …”.

    I’m a great- grandmother now. I remember MY grandmother saying “You gotta’ eat a pecka dirt before you die.”
    I believe that. If you don’t build up your immune system, it won’t be strong enough to help you when you need it.
    It’s getting harder to find a dish soap that isn’t
    ‘antibacterial.’ But antibacterial isn’t always a good thing. I’ve read some unsettling things about it.

    How did I know they were going to publish my comment twice? Because they always do.

    Good side-order of guilt, Anne!

    Annie’s right it is probably where Lizzie picked up the germs. I remember being scared when my kids were in daycare because there was something going around called hand, foot and mouth disease. I’d never heard of it until daycare, but my kids had to go because I had to work and go to school.

    In the good old days (good because they are gone) some parents would take their kids to visit another kid that had measles, chic. pox, etc, so “They’d get it over with!”
