How have you raised your kids..?
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.
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.
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.
Such a creepy sight to wake upto:|
