Ben had such a meltdown yesterday before school that I didn't think I would even be able to get him in the car, much less he would be able to function at school so I kept him home and told him Friday he was going - it's not an option! Oh my - the scene today was horrific. I took him to school and could not get him out of the car. Every door I opened he ran from and he was screaming (no tears really). The principal (who was already outside) got involved and since he would not be talked into going to school she grabbed him (with my permission) and carried him into school. I felt absolutely horrible but I could not let his fit triumph.
I did call to check on him and amazingly he had a good day. He did not cry at all and told me he had fun.
