Back in the 50's before the measles vaccination was created, parents would hold measles parties to deliberately expose their child to the measles, in hopes that it would build immunity from the disease.  Now it seems this is becoming popular again, especially in the communities that do not believe in vaccinating their children. California health officials have now had to issue warnings about measles parties.

 

This is just my opinion, but why would you expose your young child to a potentially deadly disease? Why would you purposely expose your child to sickness.
I am a parent who chose to vaccinate her child. I don't want my child exposed to any of these old dangerous diseases and unfortunately they are making a comeback.
