Sick day or play day?

La Bella Luna (otherwise known as Tuna)

Yesterday I took these pics, today I'm wondering about sick kids and sick days. What do you do when you think they are good to go back, there's no fever or obvious signs of sickness but they are complaining of a stomach ache and headache right before school?

Do you force them to go, despite tears and protestations, telling them they can go to the nurses office if they don't feel better later in the day?

Do you let them stay home, restricting them from fun stuff (like TV viewing, movies and computer time), but wondering all the while if they are just playing you for another day at home?

What's a parent to do?
