So to start this off, I will give brief information about my son (Step son but I am the only mother figure he has). His mother left him when he was 2. We received Chase when he was 3 1/2 years old. He knew nothing but 4 words: Yes, No, Scared, and Lights. He didn't know he was a boy or that his name was Chase. My fiance and I got Sole custody of Chase 2 years ago. We have showed and taught him everything he knows.
So here is the problem: Chase has started Kindergarten this year and has had a rough start to it all. He was in VPK for a year too. The teacher says he talks to much and is disruptive but when it comes to his work it is done completely and is correct. He has been having some aggressive tendencies but he is not wanting to hurt the children he wants to see what makes them tick. For example: when a puppy is small it goes through a stage that it nibbles or bites the other pups and when their siblings yelp that teaches the puppy that he should not do that. Now Chase never had that interaction with other kids until we received him at 3 1/2. Chase is never bad at home. He is really an Angel. My fiance and I have never had a problem and now that we have had over 3 parent teacher conferences this year to date, we are really worrying on why he is acting out at school but not at home...
He expresses himself through talking. How are we suppose to stop that if that is how he expresses himself.
We have already been to the doctor and they said that he has a little symptoms of ADHD but since he can basically control it that he does not need to be on Medication. We do not want to take him to a psychiatrist because the school is already doing social exercises on Fridays with Chase and some other kids that need social exercises.
Any advice would be useful.
