To make him walk when he thinks he's getting a lift.

DS has a detention after school today, (Not his fault obviously he just happened to carry on talking after he'd been warned to be quiet during the lesson!) Anyway that's not the point, I've said I'll meet him after because there are no buses to here from there, only the school bus which he'll have missed obviously.
The school is about 2.5 maybe 3 miles away, I'm thinking of walking up with the dog and then walking home with him (and the dog). The plus side is a nice walk for me and the dog and DS (although he won't appreciate it) the downside is he'll probably moan most of the way home because he's expecting me to be in the car.

I think it's a great plan, and if he moans just tell him, dog needed walking, you fancied a walk and if he doesn't want to walk, he stops talking when the teacher tells him to not when he wants to, so he doesn't get detention for it.
My dad did this to me, it was actually really nice to walk and we had a really good catch up just one to one.

We also live about 2.5/3 miles away from school and I made my ds walk home after his one and only detention he got. He hasn't had a detention since.
On the plus side he now saves his bus money and walks home everyday unless its raining which I think is far better for him as he's got a bit chubby over lockdown.
