Today I felt a bit blindsided. DS might get kicked off the bus. He's been taking off his boots and socks on the bus a number of times apparently. The bus driver just told me today, after she reprimanded him in front of me. I wasn't very impressed. I called the school to discuss a solution since I think the problem is that he's overheating during his 40 minute bus ride in the required full winter gear.
My concern is that this incident might have put off his whole day. The look on his face when the driver grabbed onto him and wouldn't let go until he said okay was heartbreaking.
I would have pulled him right off the bus and took him to school myself but riding the bus is his favorite part of the going to school routine and he seemed to want to ride the bus still. I'm going to wait and see how coming home goes before DH and I discuss taking him off the busline.
It explains why he's been a little anxious about the bus this week but he still wants to ride the bus.
Any suggestions on how to explain the incident to my DS to help minimize anxiety and acting up because of it would be nice.
