ODD parents i need help!! One of our son's biggest triggers is going to school. This has been every since he started k the 1st time. If he rides the bus he will take off and hide when he sees the bus coming, will run away, hit, kick, bite, ect. When we try taking him to school he will try to open the door and get out while the vehicle is moving, climb from front to back when u get there so u cant get him, he will hit, kick, bite, scream what ever he can.. we have had to deal with truancy issues because of this. Once he gets in the school and calms down he is perfectly fine. Never any issues, they say if they hadn't seen it for themselves they wouldnt believe it cuz hes the perfect little angel at school. Due to having truancy issues last year we decided to try online public school. Hoping that by eliminating the "getting to school" he would succeed and excel... but thats not the case. EVERY DAY is a struggle. He refuses to be on the computer when he is suppose to, refuses to do 99% of his work most of the time. His 5yr old brother started having the same fits at the end of last yr because he seen him doing it. Now that oir 9yr old is doing online school and he dont see the "fits" he is doing great! I feel if we put him back in public school hes going to do the same then once again (he already said he would) and then it is going to start effecting his brother again, but if we stay with online school is he really ever gonna get anywhere... i feel beat down and broken, and at a loss on what to do... rewards dont work, punishments dont work, nothing seems to be work. Has anyone else had these kinds of school issues, if so how do u deal with them?
