OK, I am asking here, because I know I will get honest and helpful answers. As you know, we are once again having issues with difficult child and her going to school. She panics everytime I drop her off. She is refusing to get out of the car, and tries to negotiate a later time to go to school. I have tried being nice and calm, and talking it out, but I think this is just becoming a stalling technique. I have yelled. (not one of my prouder moments) I have bargained etc. Now, I give her the opportunity to go into the building on her own. If she doesn't, I call the guidance office, and have her escorted into the building. I have done this the last 3 or 4 times she refused to go in on her own. Yesterday with easy child in the car she went in on her own with no issues, so I know she can do it. I guess what I am wondering is am I doing the right thing? I feel like it is my job as her parent to make sure she is in that building no matter what. Now, here is the next question, do you think I am over stepping by calling guidance and having someone come and get her every day? We will be starting counseling again soon to help with this.
