Yesterday was a very bad day. My son that is 5 years old and in grade K got another ISS. His first one was just about month ago. Now I told this school how many times now he is seeing a Child Psychologist for his behavior and next monday 10/25/2010 he is going to go get tested/evaluated fot ADHD. He not a bad kid he just does not think before he acts and he very hyper and all over the place. He can not sit still. Anyways the teacher sent him to the office and he got ISS for: Not following the directions(sit down, stop touching others, ect) Coming out of restroom with pants not all way up. Hiding under teachers desk, tables, inside cubbies. Touching other students.
Well most of this if he has ADHD is part of the problem I don't know what to do about it. There nothing I can do till I get him evaluated. As for the bathroom I asked him how his pants looked when he came out he showed me there was not body parts showing. It was like half inch down you can see his hip bones. Come on he 5 years old only potty trained a year ago. And my son always in hurry. So he must went bath room pull up most way was hurrying get back to class and he still pulling it up when he walked out bathroom. I asked him why he hiding under teacher desk. He said some kid kept making fun of him and laughing at him he didn't want hear it anymore so he trying hide from him. Yes he did get time out when he came home because he had ISS and did stuff he not to do. But there not much more can do. Then I got really mad because down here in TX I guess they have the right to paddle your kid they think they did wrong. Well I signed a paper at the begging of year saying they can't. Well they didn't hit him with it but they threatened him with it. He told me the Asst. Principal said to him and one other boy " your not to act like babies anymore if you do I going pump you." I asked him what that mean he said he going pump my butt and shows me with his hands like his but getting bigger. I said what you mean like pump with bike pump. He goes not he had this long black thing that looked like a i. Hello what looks like a i if you stand it up a paddle the hole on the handle the dot for the i. I ask does it have a handle on it he said ya. Then he said hitting his hand like if he had paddle in it. I going pump your butt. I was so mad. My son could have a problem and your threatening him with a paddle. Well I have conference with with teacher today anyway's going tell her to tell that asst. principle that my husband might be calling board of education about it and threaten is against the law. We don't raise out child like that. Plus not my son scared go to school. He says he don't like it anymore and he scared of that man. He don't want get hit. So have promise him nothing go happen other wise he not be in school right now. I am trying be strong for my son but this starting really make me sick. I have anxiety as it is I been having panic attacks at least 3 times a week if not more. I just so mad.....
