Mine have this thing where they will just delay getting dressed like if they're naked they can't go to school so I just tell them they can get either get dressed and ready to go or go naked, their choice. They've never tested it to see if I would actually do it lol.
That is a tough one. Each kid works so differently but I have to say that even as brutal as it sounds..the jail thing is an honest way to go about it if nothing else has worked. They can understand the consequences of the action not going to school besides being really behind in homework.
I agree with the other ladies, I tell jake that if he doesnt go to school then I will get into a lot of trouble and the police will have to come and see if I am taking care of him properly. That gets him moving usually, but he is still really little.
Tbh, I am really not sure how I would handle it while his grief is still so raw. My heart just breaks for you having to deal with this.
It usually takes me a day or two to realize they are trying to pull one over on me. then I basically tell them tough crap you're going to school Tough love baby.
But yes, it has to be extra hard for your boys right now Hillarie. I would probably just keep in touch with their teachers and try to make sure they have an extra strong support group and to keep them extra busy with things they enjoy.
