Hot Clicks: Mother uses 'sick note' to teach daughter big lesson

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.COM - -

Have your kids ever asked you to write them a sick note, excusing them from school or a class, even when you know they are feeling perfectly fine? Did you oblige them or turn down their request?

Well one mother took her daughter's request to write a sick note, excusing her from P.E., and used it to teach her daughter a big lesson about being honest and showing up for things even when you don't feel like it.

Olivia asked her mom Sam, to write her a sick note saying she didn't want to go to P.E. because it was too cold. Her mother agreed to write a note for her 11-year-old daughter, but it wasn't exactly the "sick note" Olivia had it mind.

Sealed in an envelope and addressed to the P.E. teacher, the note read:

"Olivia requested that I write her a sick note for P.E., here it is...

Olivia is perfectly fit and well to take part in her P.E. lesson today. The only thing she's suffering with is a sever case of bone-idle-itis! Olivia's complaint is, it's too cold to participate.

Might I suggest a few extra laps to help warm her up??

Please return to Olivia after reading.

Regards,

Mrs. McEvoy"

Olivia's mom posted a picture of the note on Facebook saying, "Well here you go Olivia here's your note for PE, it will be sealed & in an envelope ready for her to hand to the head in the morning." The post was shared over 3,000 times, causing quite a discussion.

According to Mail Online, Olivia, who thought her mom was going to write about her having an injured leg, limped into P.E. class and even giggled to her friends that she had gotten out of P.E. The headmaster then read the note and called Olivia aside to tell her, "there are things in life we don't enjoy but have to do."

What do you think?

Was this a good way to teach the girl a lesson or was this only a form of public humiliation?
