Well it is 12:00 am and my son woke up and vomited...Now normally this would warrent a sick day he does go to school if he has vomited in the last 24 hours...do you allow your kids sick days in homeschooling too???

 

Well its the morning he slept for a good while with the help of his gravol woke up with a low grade fever. (100.3 in the ear) so we are going to lay down and watch some movies and take it as a health and carrer day have some talks about random stuff and that should count.

It depends.  If they are feeling up to it, we will try and get something done.  If they are miserable, they get a pass.  I know that when I am sick, I don't feel like doing the things that I have to do (although I do usually still do them).

Of course I do!

Just as I wouldn't want to do a ton of housework when I'm sick, and my husband wouldn't expect me to, I would never make them do schoolwork when sick!

In fact, we just had a nasty vomiting virus here. While I was down (about 24 hours), I did no housework and my husband brought in take out for dinner, with no complaints, lol.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

When my kids are sick we usually listen to music (music appreciation class), play yo mirro (I spy in Espanol), I read them their language arts and we discuss it, and we may watch a documentary that covers something they have/will/are learning in history or science.  So I typically count the day as a half day, but we don't do a normal school day.

Do you have to keep an account of what you do each day?

We've only had one so far, but there is no way we would have accomplished anything.

Instead I made a comfy bed on the couch, and served up jello, 7-Up, and movies. :)

Not when they are really sick.

Depends on how sick he is.  We will still watch a documentary or discuss something we are learning about, but if he is really sick we just cuddle on the couch or he sleeps.

 We do educational tv shows for the sick kids and they get to read.  But the other ones are still doing school so I do not get to cuddle as much as I would like.

I play it by ear.   If they are throwing up a lot or just miserable, then no... of course they get as many sick days as they need.

If they throw up once or twice, just have a general tummy ache, etc... we usually do some lighter school, but manage to get more done than I usually expect us to.  

If they are barely sick at all, nah... we still do school.
