you should never ask a parent that unless they are doing something really wrong. every kid tries to get sick or fake sick so they don't have to go to school. that has nothing to do with how she raised her children.

A lot of people have wanted to be sick just so they didn't have to go to school. This generally happens when they have not been really sick, like had the flu, in a while and have sort of forgotten how misserable they were. I've done this, and then was rewarded with actually getting the flu and spent the few lucid moments I had for the next week wondering why I was stupid enough to actually want to get the flu.

I'd much rather pretend to be ill or make up some other excuse than actually get ill, and by breathing in another person's germy breath no less - gross! I don't think I could do that if you paid me. Just...ew. For the record, I find the best excuse is a migraine - pretty hard to prove someone hasn't got a migraine and you can recover pretty quickly if you need to.

I'm not sure 52. My parents got my headache face down pretty freaking good. I always learned honesty was the best policy. If I needed a break from school. I explained this, and they understood. No since in skipping, or faking sick.

Afraid I'm with 73. I hate lying but my parents would never have just let me have a day off, even if it was actually detrimental to my schooling to not let me stay home.

Yea, it was the same for me. If I just told my parents that I didn't feel like going to school they understood. It was pretty much the same thing with the school as well, or at least my teachers, since I'd never lie to them either and they knew it they seemed to respect that when I told them that I didn't come because I didn't feel like it. It was only those that were a bit behind or running a risk of failing a class that they were harsh with.

Seems like a good idea. If your kid has kept their grades up and they don't have any tests or projects due on that day, a free pass for a day sounds like a good reward.

Getting days off was the only reason I did homework in highschool. I found out I could pass with a B average by getting hundreds on all the tests and never touching homework. I decided to never do homework, so my old man made a deal with me. Two weeks of no missing homework was a free day pass. I actually did all my homework the last two years of highschool.

One time I took a laxative and told my mom I had the shits and couldn't go to school.... Worst day ever.... I learned super quick that was a BAD idea. And I still had to go to school. I came out ok regardless of my dumb teenage ideas. There's hope OP :) lol
