The principal called me once and said he was about to call the government (cas). I made him not to. I have been talking to his teachers and I have been in touch with principal a lot. There were days when the child didn't wanna go to school. I called him and we solved that problem. If my son (grade 4) has no health issues this month he wont be missing any days. I work with teachers to improve marks.

My ex is NOT going to get what she wants. She was practically out of picture for 7 years and only this year she held on 50/50. The weird thing is she has been driving the kid to-from school, picked him up from my place. I haven't ddrove the child to her house almost a year. I never said I can't or won't, she just does it. IDK if that is another tactic but she has a lot to PROVE. Her word against mine.
Is it possible she's just trying to make sure kid gets to school?

Without all the information I will assume one of two reasons for the truancy issue.
1 - Kid misses school and is frequently late for school because every morning it's a fight just to get him to go.
or
2 - Kid misses school and is frequently late for school because parent doesn't get their ass out of bed in the morning to send them, and kid doesn't care.
