Has anyone ever sent their child to school whining and crying about not feeling good because you knew he or she was ok?
I have so much drama in the mornings with my son because he does have medical problems he stresses over everything even when he is alright. I feel horrible when I literly walk him into school and leave him with a counselor. They usually tell me to leave and he will be fine but I still feel guilty making him go. He misses so much school and we have to be sure staying home is absolutely necessary.
I solved it by making a rule. If you are staying home sick then you must rest. That means no electronics, staying in bed or on the couch and no friends over. It's not a punishment, but trust me my kids don't stay home unless they really don't feel good because it's not fun to be here, bored.
