What good would that do?

My Sds mom is pissed because I kept her home from school today. While we weren't out late, the kids couldn't fall asleep, some assholes kid was jumping out of bushes scaring people and he terrified SD and my ds. They could not fall asleep, and no they had no candy last night.

What good would sending an exhausted 6 year old to school do? Honestly what good is it? She wouldn't learn anything because she would be too tired to pay attention.

What's the point when they're tired?

I'd have sent her. Lesson is even if you're tried you have responsibilities. Plus she would definitely be tired enough to sleep tonight.

I wouldn't want them to think being tired is a reason to stay home. That could form some bad habits.

That lesson shouldn't really be shoved on first graders....junior high kids maybe

I would think that because her bio Mom wanted her to go and since the child isn't sick, the child would be fine to go no matter her age is reason enough to have sent her.

But what the hell do I know other than this is a vent post and you'll be arguing opposing points....

It could. Maybe one day they decide they dont want to go to school just because and being tired is an acceptable reason to do so.

Sorry, so-and-so child isn't coming to school today, they're "too tired".

That would be an unexcused absence in my district. Going to school tired isn't going to kill her. I'd have sent my kids too.

Most people won't agree to keeping a kid out of school because they're tired. Argue all you want, your hill to die on, but I agree with bm.
