1 mom liked this

Mine need to lay either in bed or on the couch, eat mild foods (soup, toast, etc).

 she usually stays on the couch watching tv, or goes back to bed..as for food..usually when shes sick she doesnt eat, but she drinks gingerale and maybe has some dry toast

 then again it depends on what kind of sick...cuz if shes home with just a cold (the school doesnt want them there when they have a cold for the first 2 days) then we hang out..lol..go to the mall, go for lunch..etc..i quite enjoy those days :)

however, i will make sure she continues to read, and i will give her some worksheets to do.

Lay in bed and rest no tv nothing what so ever eat what I'm serving and that's that if your so sick to go to school every thing must be hurting is what my mom used to say made it less appealing to fake sick lol so I will be doing the same thing

Stay in bed or on the couch, watch tv or play on laptop and eat what sounds good, as long as it's not just candy or junk. BUT, if the turns out they're faking, they stay in bed and spend the day and night with nothing to do but look at four walls and the ceiling.

He either lays in his bed resting and watching movies or lays on the couch.  Depending on what is wrong will depend on what he eats/drinks.

He spends the day resting. He can eat whatever he wants.

Depends on the sickness what he eats but no rowdy play and no extra curriculars (no sports practice, no going anywhere fun, etc). If you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to do anything else.
