Title: Bringing my children to appointments
Post by: sdpm7 on August 05, 2019, 04:01:16 pm
I’ve been strugglign with what to do with my kids when I have to go to appointments with various doctors. My youngest isn’t in school yet and during the summer and on the weekends, I have to figure out what to do with my 3 kids. Occasionally my mom is able to help me out and watch them or in the past I’ve hired a babysitter. But recently I’ve been trying to save money because the treatments and medicines are adding up (so no babysitter) and when my mom is unavailable, I don’t know what to do. Is it inappropriate to bring them along to check ups and shorter, less serious visits? They know that I’m sick and going through treatment but I’m not sure what the proper etiquette is in this situation.
