9 What happens if my child is sick or homesick during the overnight stay?  If there are any illness problems during the overnight stay, Miss McClemens will contact you. If you child does get homesick, we do try to encourage them to be brave and their friends will support them to try to take their minds off feeling homesick before phoning parents. Overnight stays at friends houses are good ways of becoming accustomed to nights away from home. 
