As a parent, our child takes days off from kindergarten for important family events or when sick. I would like to think that the stakes are low for kindergarten in general and a family fun day, mental health day, etc. are reasonable justifications for a day off.
Eventually, later in her school career, these could be disruptive to her learning. In kindergarten, there isn't as much of an impact.
On the other hand, since part of the purpose of kindergarten is to teach kids how to be school kids, does taking a day off outside of major events or sickness set a bad example? Should we be ensuring her days off are only when sick or for very important things, or should we take advantage of the low stakes of kindergarten and take days off when we feel like it?
How do we frame both our thinking and how we talk about it with our child either way?
