Does anyone else's kids fight getting ready for school? Its only week two and I'm already exhausted and SO SO tired of this fight. My difficult child doesn't seem to mind school itself, but hates the getting ready process. He fights eating breakfast, getting clothes on, putting shoes on, walking to the bus stop (its VERY close and I go with him) etc....I help him with all these things as much as I can, but he will still go into a rage and end up hitting or kicking me (and he won't just hit/kick once--he will keep being aggressive until I can get him to his room to calm down.) Some of his tantrums are brought on by sensory issues, but some of it is just plain defiance. I buy his shoes and clothes so that they are extra soft and comfortable--he will only wear one brand of shoes (its expensive) so that's what I buy. I try to make everything as easy on him as humanly possible. I make the routine the same everyday and there are no suprises. And still...its fighting every morning. The crazy thing is--he's in afternoon kindergarten, so he just has to be ready by noon. He gets up at 6:45ish, and it takes me all freakin' morning to get him ready. I have NO clue what I'm going to do next year, when he has to be ready by 8:30. Heaven help me.
