I have a beautiful, bright, loving and funny little boy who apparently is a different child when he is not around me. Reese is defiant to his teacher in kindergarten, refuses to do the work, (he is able to do it, but instead prefers to draw), he has SPIT on a child in school and hit, punched, pushed down and used the eraser end of his pencil to "stab another student in the stomach multiple times". (Teachers wording, not mine). The trouble started when he was on a swing and kicked a smaller neighbor kid; apparently to see what it was like. The minute he gets off the bus I look in his backpack to see if there is a note. At first I thought that he must have been seriously provoked in order to do these things, not that that'd make it ok, but at least there would be a cause. He has always been happy, loving and just a sweetheart that everyone loves to fawn over because he is so cute. Too cute for his own good because he is spoiled in the sense that his aunts and uncles always have something for him and he gets toys all the time and has no real reward system. This is a me thing, I want him to have all that I did not. I thought that as long as good discipline was implemented that the toys and flat screen tv wouldn't hurt. In school his K class is huge, (24), and no individual attn. Is given unless he is in trouble. It might be worth saying that most of these occurrences happen when there are a group of kids and not one on one. I have caught him swearing too, and he does it as casually as if he's been cussing like a sailor for years. The last straw was
Yesterday at mcdonalds playland when he spit in a child's face. He got the spanking of his life. Maybe if I had done this sooner we wouldn't be where we are today, but I never thought it would escalate to this. I am very worried ablut wbat the future holds for my son. The school wants to evaluate him for special education aven though he can do the work. I'd be bappy to answer any questions to fill in the blanks if anyone has gone through this and can give me some input. I feel like I'm the only one here going through this. Thank You!
