My 4 year old son (soon to be 5 in November) started Kindergarten this September. This month for the most part has been hell, for him and alike. Since birth he has never been to a daycare facility, and we skipped Pre-K because he had a speech delay that I wanted to get help for. With all this said, I knew the transition would be difficult.. but not his difficult. He is a brilliant boy, and can read books already front to back. (Sometimes I have to help with the really big words) His behavior in school has been AWFUL. I have already had 2 meetings with his teacher and the principal and that was just in the first 2 weeks. Thankfully, he calmed down for a few weeks.. more good notes than bad.. and then today I got the doozy. His teacher has informed me that she is getting together with other faculty members to come up with different solutions to his behavior problems.
He lives in a stable environment, his routine is the same everyday. He leaves for school and comes home grinning ear to ear. I just don't understand where his aggressive and defiant behavior is coming from.. or what I can do as his mommy to help him get through. His father and I have tried everything..from long talks to taking things away that he enjoys. I just can't seem to get through to this stubborn boy.
Thanks for reading! :)
