Bus drivers should do their job and treat every child and parent with respect. While bus drivers are confronted with stressful situations and need to police the bus to some extent, bus driver should not arm themselves with weapons or make threats against parents.
If you have a problem with a school bus driver, speak to the driver if you are able to. If not, take up the problem with the principal, school administration, transportation department or supervisor, and if necessary to the school board / district.
