Should I make my 7yr daughter ride the school bus? There are no problems with the bus. The driver is nice and no problems with the other children. My daughter just has a problem with seperation. She does not want to ride the bus because I am not with her. If I pick her up from school it would only be 30-45 minutes earlier. She cries all morning on the way to school if I tell her it is a bus riding day. She does not ride the bus to school only ride it home except Wed.
