Respecting kids
This comment is in response to Is it okay for kids to take a 'sick day'? on Facebook.

I would never lie and say my kids are sick but if they are feeling exhausted or something has happened that they need to be at home for emotional reasons then yes I let them. I respect their feelings as I respect my own. They can't always be expected to be 'on their game'.
