Why Not Just Take The Day Off?

Why do you need a bad day box? Why not just take the day off of school? The short answer is you can totally just take the day off and there is nothing wrong with that. However what I have found in all my years of homeschooling is that taking days off can actually make it hard to get back into the swing of things so having a bad day box can give you a break from the day to day tasks while keeping you on track.
