Would You Let Your Child Lick a Chicken Pox Lollipop?

It’s even grosser than it sounds…

Parents who don’t want to vaccinate their children against chicken pox are meeting each other on Facebook and sending out Chicken Pox Lollipops! The idea? That your child gets chicken pox when they are a kid to get it over with since it is so much worse when you get it as an adult.

So what is a Chicken Pox Lollipop?

It is a lollipop that a child with chicken pox licks, then it is sent off to another child to lick so that they, too, get chicken pox. First of all… nasty!!! Second of all… chicken pox on purpose? Really?!

Would you do this as a mom? Melinda had an emphatic answer…
