My oldest son is 3, turning 4 in December. He is scheduled to begin Preschool in September and I am concerned that his behaviour will get him in a lot of trouble. I have been working with him tirelessly all summer to try and get him to change the way he behaves and acts in public with a small amount of success. It's nothing horrible, it's just the little things that he knows isn't appropriate but decides to do anyways. The little progress that I did make with him ended when school let out since his 2 older brothers (step) who don't behave at all came to spend summer vacation with us. I believe that part of that has to do with my lack of success with my son. They are physically violent towards each other, they use inappropriate language and show no respect to anyone including each other. I am at a complete loss as to what to do and I have tried several techniques such as time out, loss of toys & loss of privileges. This works for NONE of them. I worry tremendously that he will do something or say something at school to get himself into trouble and I would really like to curb this in the last week I have. If you have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
