Do you ever let your kids...

skip school.  Whether it be because you overslept or you want to take them for a special event (whether it be Disney Land or Circus) or because you don't feel good and don't want to take them?  The only time my dd misses school is from illness.  If she has an appt, she will either be late to school or pulled out early.  What about you?

Yep.  If my kids are honest and just need a mental health holiday, I'll let them take off.

I let my son skip school to go to Maui for a week, but besides that, he's only missed school for an illness

No they are never allowed to just skip school unless it's due to illness.

Only a few times. My oldest almost never misses school. She's in honors classes so it's not worth it to skip if she doesn't need to because of all the work she has to make up.

Never.  Its a slippery slope that I don't want to get on!

I've overslept before and he hasn't gone. Its only 2.5 hours so if I wake up 45 minutes after its started I won't waste time going for an hour. I just go over his old homework papers with him and call it good.

Only once did he skip for anything other than an illness. I overslept, BAD!! I'll just take him late if I oversleep a little bit, but this one time I slept until an hour and a half after he was supposed to be there. I felt so dumb I just called him in that day.
