Mental Health Days

Responsible people work on weekdays. And responsible people take their children to school on weekdays. Except that occasionally, they don’t. Barbara used to occasionally do what she called “Mental Health Days”, where she would simply take her kids out of school for no reason other than that they were stressing and needed a break. They would spend an afternoon, or sometimes the day, just doing something completely unrelated to what they were stressing over.

I highly recommend the practice.
