Elementary kids often ask to go to school because they think it is all fun and games. They want to ride the school bus or play on the playground or eat in the cafeteria. Only the fun part of school is shown in cartoons and in movies. So, when Ani said she wanted to go to school, I asked why (she wanted to ride the bus). So I told her 1.) she wouldn't ride the bus anyway (where we lived and where the elementary school was at the time meant she would have been a walker) and 2.) we could ride the city bus any time she wanted. She quit asking to go.
