It's my baby's 6th birthday tomorrow and he asked for the day off school. It got me wondering what other families do. So do your kids go to school on their birthday?

Kids birthdays while at school

Not in this house. School except when sick and a personal health day maybe once a year.
Birthdays can be celebrated at school, we do cupcakes, and also another special day on the weekend.

My kids love going to school on their birthdays! They get a big fuss made of them, and wear a badge and get to share cupcakes.
I honestly wouldn't let them have the day off though, I would tell them Dad has to go to work on his birthday, and school is their responsibility just like Dad's job. They still get a fancy breakfast and gifts before school, then I take them out for a treat after school like a milkshake, and then they get to chose dinner and a cake etc.

I go to work if my birthday falls in a Monday-Friday and my kids have always gone to school if it's a school day.
Ive never really understood when people do let kids have their birthday off school , I do think it sets a bad precedent.

Sorry to crash the tread but what is a personal health day?? And when my kids are older they will go to school on their birthdays unless they are sick

DS went to school this year for his birthday. He loved it. Got a sticker from the teacher and had cupcakes. He loved it and all the kids love spending the day with whoever's birthday it is.

I would let him stay home if his attendance at school is otherwise good.
My birthday is 29th December, and being a school teacher, I never have to work on my birthday. My husband's birthday is early January, usually during Christmas break, so the argument of working on your birthday in this house wouldn't work

I go to work on my birthday and my kids go to school on theirs. None of mine have ever asked for the day off on their birthdays - much more fun at school

Ours go to school and I take cupcakes for the class.
