My brother’s 5 year old didn’t want to get on the bus today. Stressful for dad and child. I suggested he set up a reward program that celebrates cooperative bus riding. Ride the bus Monday-Thursday.
Friday dad and son celebrate by going for a breakfast and getting a car ride to school on Fridays!
Nice bonding time, less stress, more smiles. Do you have a solution for children that do not want to get on the bus and create school bus stress? Please share your ideas.
