I have a 6 yr old boy who will be going into 2nd grade. Kindergarten and 1st grade were a nightmare. He was ok academically but he really struggles with the teachers. He doens't listen, often leaves the room, runs from the teacher, has started throwing things and hitting other kids and spends more time in the principals office than he does in the classroom. He is going to the YMCA this summer for daycare and I was hoping it would be different but already after 1 week the behavior letter came home stating he is disobediant, defiant, has trouble with the teachers, doesn't list, etc. We just started counseling and he has been to 3 sessions already... of which all the counselor does is play... he thinks its a joke and play time.. I have an appointment with his pediatrician this coming Friday to have his levels tested to see if he has any imbalances or what is going on.. I DO NOT want medication and that will be only as a last resort.
