  • Sounds like she's made a game of it. Get her attention and firmly tell her it is not a game and tell her what she needs to do when the bus stops.

  • Doesn't the bus have an aide?

  • Does she want to ride the bus? If so tell her she won't be allowed to if she keeps it up.

  • Drive her to school yourself.

  • My DD did that at the begining of the school year... they ended up using one of their carseats and then tried again, and when they took her out of the carseat after a month of being in the carseat she stopped.
