My child got an attendance bonus at school – and I’m angry about it

Last week my son came home from school with a sparkling new pencil case that he won for his 100 percent attendance. He was so excited about his achievement and beaming with pride. I told him what a lovely pencil case it was, but quickly monologued him about how presence doesn’t make a child good or bad. It’s nice that he’s been going to school every day so far this semester, but I can’t congratulate him because it wasn’t his achievement – just his luck in the draw.

There are kids who didn’t go to school because they were sick,” I told him as he played with his prize and half stopped what I was saying to him. “Maybe they have a special need that made it difficult for them to make it through, or they might have a stomach ache from anxiety about work or the other kids.”
