Quoting Bogey Woman:" I know that when I would lie about being sick it was because I was being picked on :/"
Quoting Coupon Lady:" It has nothing to do with that, at all, a very smart kid with more then enough friends, and is always ... [snip!] ... tell anyone if any kid has been mean to her, lol Its something that she likes to do, just stay home so she can play with toys."
Quoting The Doctor:" If I thought my child was lying, I'd pick them up... but not let them watch TV and play games."That is what my parents did to me. I had to stay in my room so I wouldn't get anyone else sick, I couldn't even eat supper with family. No TV, just bed and books all day. I never did it again.
Quoting Supafly★:" Depends on how often this happens. My mother sent me to school no matter what. One year I had the flu ... [snip!] ... my brother and he came from PA to pick me up. That's a little extreme. I see nothing wrong with a day off here and there. "
Quoting The Doctor:" If I thought my child was lying, I'd pick them up... but not let them watch TV and play games."
Quoting Coupon Lady:" Often, last year she missed over 80 days of school for pretending to be sick. Her mom complained that ... [snip!] ... that as soon as dad was gone with the car she would start running around and playing and wanting to eat junk all day."
Quoting Bogey Woman:" Gotcha. Is she maybe not stimulated enough at school? "
Quoting Supafly★:" Her mom has to be way more strict with her. No toys, no junk food, no running around. Otherwise she's fine enough to go to school."
