My son started a new school this year and he has been in trouble everyday since he started. Saying Inapproprate words, hitting other children, and yelling out in class.

I am having the exact same problem, but in my case it's not a different school, its the same school he went last year but different teacher. The problem for us is that he gets blamed for everything. Lol plus I think he is jealousy about his 1 year old brother and keeps hitting him all the time. We r very sad with his behaviour. And don't have a clue on what we can do.

Offer rewards for good behavior when he has it. Use stickers daily and if he gets 5 by Friday, then he can pick a dessert or a small toy or even play a game with you.

he may be having an adjustment problem at the school, and acting out by being a class clown to make friends. or he could think if he gets kicked out of that school he can go back to his old school. I would ask him why he's behaving this way. I would ask him what he likes and dislikes about his new school.

When my 6 year old acts up in school, it's usually because she is talking during class. If her teacher relays to me that she is not behaving, the worst she has gotten is orange. But orange causes her to get a spanking with the belt, I then ground her from sweets, tv and the wii. I ground her for the entire week. I tell her if she gets green on any day during that week she will get the restrictions removed for the rest of that day. It acts as a motivator for her to be able to earn back the things she wants. I also let her know if she gets anything worse than a yellow( green and yellow are ok) then she will be grounded for that weekend. This acts as a deterrent to continuing with the bad behavior. She has a choice to just get by on the yellow or try for green and get her restrictions removed for the day. They have a conduct chart in her school folder and it comes home everyday and everyday her teacher will put a color in the box for that particular day. Green is great worker and Yellow is ready to learn, Orange is warning, Blue is lose recess and Red is parent contact. If she gets green during any day of the week that she is grounded I let her have sweets tv and the wii. But if she get yellow or worse the grounding stays in effect. I dont know if your child's teacher does this...but it is a good way to know how your child is behaving on a daily basis and hold them accountable.

Hi Monica, you want to get details to who, when and why your child is acting out in school. Then meet with all teachers to discuss your concerns, and completing the circle of accountability. Once you get that information you may be able to pin point behavior to a certain subject not interested in, a certain person, or time during day. Also, while you during that you can send a journal to school to report behavior daily from all teachers. providing a small treat for good behavior, and grounding for bad behavior. Good Luck!
