It's been a long time since I posted a difficult child-related problem. We had been smoothly sailing along. That's over. Backstory: When difficult child was in kindergarten he got kicked out of the school and sent to a local school for special needs children. Since difficult child could not handle himself on the bus, a taxi was sent each day to take him to school and bring him home. The school district paid for it (I couldn't believe it but they did). On some occasions the taxis were all busy and he was brought to school in a limo!!!!! When difficult child got to high school he started riding the bus again and going to a local high school and for the most part has been fine on the bus. We had no issues Freshman Year, Sophomore Year or Junior Year. Nada. Zilch. No issues. The bus driver called the other day. difficult child has been purposely swearing on the bus trying to get kicked off and told his driver he wanted a taxi again. difficult child says the other kids have been bothering him. Both husband and I along with his school teacher and guidance counselor have told him it's a big "NO" on the taxi - he has to take the bus as he has been fine on the bus the last three years. difficult child got a detention for the swearing. His teacher and bus driver both said that he is NOT swearing at anybody in particular he just keeps repeating "F--- Off" to nobody in particular. difficult child is hearing impaired so his teacher suggested he take his "Y-cords" from school to plus into his hearing aids and ignore everyone on the bus. Any other suggestions?
