WHY does he need to wake at 5am for school at 5 years old?  Goodness! That nearly seems cruel! 

When BF/SM moved 50+ miles away, that's when BF gave up his school night overnights with the boys. I flat refused to allow him to take them on a school night when, knowing what traffic is like in our area (where he moved to as well as the traffice between there and where I live/they go to school) in the morning, he'd have had to wake them at 5 to leave by 6, just in case a semi overturned or some other accident prevented the freeways from moving (this happens nearly daily on the roads he'd take, either of the 3 routes - it's actually more 'newsworthy' when there are NO accidents along those routes than when there are).  He'd need to plan at least 2 hours to get them to school on time (and now it's 2 different schools, for one year it was the same school for both boys).  I said no way.  We negotiated and he doesn't have school nights any longer.  The boys were terrified they'd have to keep going too!  They balk at waking by 6:45, 5:00 am seemed doubly cruel! 

The 'good' news is, he's young, and whatever he's learning in school can also be taught at home to 'catch up'.  Changes like this is a few years could be more difficult, but 5 it's nothing permanent that can't be recovered. 

Poor kid.  :(

Exactly. Bm moved 2 hours away without notification. Dh has 50/50 . She told dh las weeken on sunday that she moved and she took ss out of school. Monday she gave dh a hard time about the early release on thurs and refused to pick up ss. wed she drops him at 7pm and says she switched schools again. If dh gives custody to her next week...it'll look bad on dh at court plus she has her boyfriend shower with ss...if he keeps him out of school even for kindergarten. ..it will look bad on dh in court as well...so this poor kid has to suffer until the courts intervene...ugh..no wonder he acts out horribly in school

That is what I said! How much are they willing to let BM get away with? What if she moves 5 hours away? They have to put an end to it now because this is all hurting her SS. He needs some stability and right now BM is not providing that.

Well, at least he's only 5...so switching schools is like switching daycares.  He's not really missing any substanitive "learning".  

Hope you guys get it sorted out soon!
