How many days should my 14 year old child stay home from school, with the flu?

In brief: Until better

That depends on the child and the response to the illness.
Typically one should be home three days. Stay home one day longer after fever breaks. The child should feel well enough to go back to school. It s not ever surprising to me if someone is out a whole week with the flu...Time to heal and fully recover.
