difficult child has a class trip to the art museum coming up and his teacher basicallly said she isn't comfortable taking him without my husband or I coming as a chaperone. His behavior has become more violent in the last couple of weeks, which included throwing a chair in the classroom. I just don't know that I can continue to go on every class trip with him, as I just went with is class to the zoo. And if I go with difficult child on every class trip, it would only be fair to also go on every class trip with easy child. My husband cannot go because of work. I can ask Grandma if she would like to go and I can go also, but I was hoping to save up some time off for doctor's appointments and days difficult child gets suspended (no daycare, I'm sure you understand). I am a little conflicted because I feel that he should learn that there are consequences to his behavior (such as not being allowed to go on class trips). But I also know that he doesn't understand punishment like other children and keeping him home won't change his behavior. How have you all handled this with your own difficult child?
