difficult child has a new bus driver this year and he does not handle change well at all. He also does not like the new driver but cannot articulate why. School started a couple of weeks ago and he has already refused to get on the bus in the morning 5 times. Once we let him stay home, the rest I drove him to school. husband took away his phone and his computer yesterday for refusing to get on the bus. It's always the morning bus - never the afternoon one home. The bus also has a bus monitor on it who is a very nice older man that difficult child likes. I've emailed difficult child's teacher and she cannot get it out of him why he is refusing the bus. Any ideas?? As it stands right now difficult child wants to hang out with a friend this weekend. We told him if he doesn't get on the bus every single morning he does not get to go out with his friend.
