I have a 4 year old that is currently in daycare. For the past couple of weeks he has been acting totally out in school, but when he comes home. he is like a different child. I have taken everything away from him, but he goes right back to school and still does not listen to the teacher or anyone else for that matter. Anyone has a 4 year old that is going or has gone through this before? I would love some advice.

Our son took a bit to adjust both when he started somewhere new, as well as when new people joined his daycare as well. (it's a small place). It took our son having threats made of being kicked out (he loves it there) for him to shape up.

I've read that you changed the center? I'm glad you found one that he's doing better in now. I would guess that he's not being challenged enough at the first center. As a child care worker myself I've seen children that act out not b/c they have behavioral problems but b/c they are bored. Did that center have a curriculumn that offered variety and did the teacher use it effectively? Was it a really crowded center where things were constantly changing? Is he the oldest in the class by a few months or are a couple different age groups in the same class? These are things I look at when I take my daughter to a new school. I've actually taken her out of a school b/c I felt she wasn't getting the correct care for her. Perfectly fine school. Just not for her. Good luck with your son. And most of all have patience.

Thanks Rameen, but no he has been in daycare since he was six weeks old. I now has changed the center, so I hope that works for him. Because I think he was getting bored in the center.

Is this his first time in a daycare, if thats the case he will take is his time to adjust in the the new enviorment, my son was having the same problem in the kindergarten, 2 months ago, I worked with the teacher and it really helped, he is now doing fairly good.Keep talking to him and ask the teacher if you and her can make a school skit book with pictures together which mention all the school rules, then read it everyday with him, that helped my son alot.Donot take away everything from him it will not help rather talk to him and try to spend as much time with him.
