dont wanna go to school.

What is your trick to getting them there without much arguing. Or is it a bit of a stern argument getting them out the door??

LOL Connor has been trying to get out of school for a few months now and he comes down with every ailment or pain he can to do so.

One day its he cant walk cuz a muscle hurts, another day he cant go cuz he cant blink right,etc.

Lately, cuz of Dans death, he has been worse about it. I just tell him that if he doesnt go the police will come get him cuz its called truency when you skip school LOL.

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.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

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.

That is actually a good idea. You need to go to school if you want to do extra curricular activities.

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.
