So this year my oldest DS is in 2nd grade, my middle DS is in 1/2 day kindergarten and my baby DS is well home with me. We have a bus stop, and they go to school at different times.
My question is this.....My older doesn't like his little brother clinging to him and doesn't want to sit with him on the bus which i am demanding.
I am demanding because there are other kids on the bus that are little bastards that the bus driver can't control. I'm sorry for using that term, but my older has come home with a huge lump on his head bc a kid on the bus decided she didn't like him and whacked him in the head with something she shouldn't have had in the first place. Point is the bus driver has alot of unruly little brats that will still be on the bus this year and to avoid issues I'm making the boys sit together.
How do I make my older DS understand this? They are 7 and 5.

My 5 year old also started school and is riding the bus. My 9 year old doesn't want to sit with her lil sister either. The kindergarten kids have to sit in the front near the bus driver. Last year there was a bully on the bus, but he has moved on to torture middle school kids, so I haven't heard of any more trouble makers. I wouldn't know how to make the older kids understand that they need to be helpful. At my kids school I reported the trouble maker kids and then they get kicked off of the bus for a while and their parents have to take them to school.
