If we were sick we were confined to our rooms (or Mums car if she was working).
My nieces and nephews go to Dreamworld when they're 'sick'.

My niece gets a week off once a month because she has her period, then she gets 3 days off because she dirties her uniform and only has one that it takes them 3 days to get clean, or my SN SIL throws the uniform in the bin and she gets a month off school while they wait for the new one to arrive, or she doesn't have shoes and has until mums pay day off school...
Because no kid ever had a note excusing them for these things apparently.
On these days she gets to do a lot of really fun things and then they wonder why she's always looking for excuses to not go to school.
Then they wonder why she struggles to write a legible sentence.

My son gets confined indoors yep.. his days off are ALWAYS asthma related though.. usually a mild virus sets it off. And the best remedy is staying warm and calm.. watch some movies and have lots of orange juice and sleep I can understand that if its something like chickenpox, they CAN play outside, but should avoid contact with other kids. But I also know people who just always keep their kids home out of lazyness. And its a five minute walk to school. And their kids are probably safer walking to school alone than hanging at home all day with mummy and daddy and their charming visitors.

I think mental health days can be important for some kids and parents. I know people who do it once a term, they pick a day, let the school know the child will be off and check it doesn't clash with exams, school photos, excursion days, etc.
