Is school attendance an issue for your child(ren)?

Hmm..that's a good question! Do you mean do they get sick so often that they go over the amount of absences allowed by the school? When mine were younger, they got legitimately sick a lot more often but as they've gotten older, it's more common that they are "sick". As in, maybe they don't feel ready for a test or a project due that day and therefore, their head or stomach "hurts". Undecided

Yes, exactly. My oldest had excellent attendance until DH bought him a car and then Matt kept driving back home at all hours of the school day. It's a miracle that boy graduated high school because I never sent notes to excuse those absences! Embarassed
