Talking about letting your kid(s) 'skip' school just because (not for actual mental health reasons). I was amazed how many people said they did... They all gave reasons such as 'They get so stressed out over school' or 'If I can take a day off from work then they should get one from school' and even a few 'well, I just miss him so I want to have an extra day'
Am I really the only one who thinks that this is selfish and/or just silly? They are only in school 180 days *if* they don't get sick. Is that really so much to ask?

I wouldn't allow my son to just stay at home and do nothing unless he is sick. Now, if there was something educational going on or something special was happening and it was a "once in a lifetime" type thing, then I would consider it IF he was doing well in school.
