So wee difficult child's good run has ended (been a few weeks now) and he's back to tossing furniture at school, etc. *** The hard-lined teacher does not help and will not bend her ways. *** Wee difficult child is starting to toy with the idea of refusing to get out of the car at school. He has not physically refused yet, but he is testing the waters. He is 6, with the physical strength and abilities of a child at least 8 or 9 years old. My "window" of being able to overpower him is shrinking fast. *** I am not sure what to do. As much as I think sending him to public school would be a disaster, if he starts refusing to go to school because of this one teacher, I have not gained anything from the private school, where everyone else works well with him. *** Do I push him out of the car and into school when he balks? Do I back off? Transfer schools? Give an ultimatum to the school that this teacher does not deal with him? *** FWIW our public school so far has refused a 1 on 1 aid for him, saying they will add it later if needed. There are very few places that difficult child's entire team come together on, but this is one that they do, and they ALL agree that this would be disastrous for him - to be allowed to fail before help is brought in. *** Suggestions?
