Staying home from school because you're sick
Posted 16 October 2012 - 07:44 AM
When I was growing up it always seemed like I was being punished for being sick because my mom would make me stay in bed all day deeming that if I was too sick to go to school then I needed to be in bed.
I make her rest but I don't force her to stay in bed. I let her watch tv but if she seems well enough to do some work I have her practice her school work for a little while. I think it's most important to get plenty of rest so they can recover.
What do you do when your kids are sick or you're sick and at home from school?

Nah, if mine are sick, I just tell them to chill, watch TV, play Xbox whatever... doesn't really matter. If you're sick, you're sick...
Forcing them to lay in the bed all day is not gonna help anything.... plus mine are both old enough now to stay home alone so they do whatever they want anyway.

If she watched TV it was watching her Grandmas shows (Soap operas and talk shows) and there was no going outside or anything that would be "fun" beyond reading.
Further, staying out of school meant foregoing any plans she may have had after school hours. It was a blown day.

My son's only 2, but when he's older and if he's sick I'll let him do what he wants and feels up to, so long as he isn't overexerting himself.
School work is overrated. So is mandatory "education." So is forced quarantine.
