Umm.. no. That's pretty selfish. Why send my own kids to their grandparent's house (or someone else's) so that the grandparents (or whoever) are at risk just so that I'm not. That's very selfish. No, I would not do it. Plus, I'm pretty good with sicknesses since I do some Ayurvedic studying. For instance, my sister, mom & neices were all sick with the flu right after Christmas (one of them had it on Christmas day) and I knew that honey has an ingredient in it that kills the influenza germ & garlic cloves can help prevent you from catching sicknesses, so I loaded up on honey & garlic since I was staying in the house with all of these sick family members for several days around Christmas. So I simply use what I know to keep us from getting sick or to prevent the rest of us from catching it when one of us do. It usually works like a charm. Not always, but there's no way I'd pawn my sick children off on someone else & let them run the risk of catching it just so I'm safe. Especially a grandparent, since many times, the elderly (not all grandparents are elderly, but you get what I mean) are more at risk of catching viruses/etc. than a younger, healthier person like me.
