Should a child who misses school attend sports?

My child loves going to karate every evening. I go out of my way to accommodate sports. When they don’t attend school because they don’t feel well, I don’t feel they should go to karate of any other sports. If you truly were sick enough to miss school, then you are not well enough for sports. I feel like it is just an excuse to miss school. What is your opinion?

I mean if you’re sick from school then no Karate. It doesnt make sense to stay home from school & go to karate :roll_eyes:

No school, no sports. Not that hard. Who’s the parent here?

Nope, if you’re too sick for school you’re too sick for any sport. Stay home in bed.

My child would always miraculously feel better when school was out. I made her miss the fun stuff too.

If your sick you need to stay at home. I do the same thing with my kids. If they stayed home sick they dont go to their meetings either.

I agree. If you’re too sick to go sit in a classroom then you’re definitely too sick to do physical activities like karate and other sports

100% agree. If you are sick enough to miss school, you are sick enough to miss your extracurriculars.

Nope. My daughter is very active in softball and basketball, if she stays out of school or feeling unwell she doesn’t get to attend practice or games that night. If she’s too sick to attend to her responsibilities (school), she’s too sick to do things she finds fun.

No, when I was a kid if I missed a day of school during the week, I wasn’t allowed to go anywhere that weekend. No karate

if you’re too “sick” to go to school or work, you’re too “sick” to leave your room. Sorry kid……you made that. bed, now lay in it

If you dont go to school you don’t go to after school activities… plain and simple

I have the same rule, if you miss school bc you’re sick then you can’t go to sports. If they had a doctors appointment that is different.

I agree with you and that’s the rule in our house. If your too sick for school your too sick for extras :woman_shrugging:
