What do you do when your child just doesn’t get ready in the morning. They don’t scream, or shout, they show no sign of concern about being late, they just ignore you and read a book?

What do you do when your child, finally nearly ready, oh so late,  sits there looking at their shoes and says that putting them on makes them feel cold?

What do you write in the reason column in the “not that late book, that only goes up to a certain time, can I ask you to write in this one” late book, for why your child is at school an hour late?

What do you do when he then sits on your knee in the office, snuggling, holding you, not speaking, not moving, while school life goes on around you?

What is the right thing to do?
