My son keeps misbehaving at school and I just do not know what to do anymore. He keeps hitting kids, kissing kids, throwing dirt/mud/rocks, even eating the dirt/mud/rocks. We see a psychologist due to ADHD suspicions and decided to only see each other once or twice a year because he had been doing good for a month. Literally a week or two after the appointment he started acting out again and has been doing so for about 2 or 3 weeks already! He won't stop hitting kids. I feel like I am doing everything wrong. I have tried everything from rewards for good behavior, time-outs, to chores around the house, to running laps in the yard, and regrettably even a spanking. I obviously have a long discussion with him before these punishments. Nothing is working and I feel like I am going crazy. He is always on the verge of suspension. The most recent call from the school was about switching teachers and I am hoping that will work. He just will not listen. When I tell him not to do something he looks very apologetic and says he will not do it again but will turn around and do it in school the very next day! Please help. My son is 5 years and in kindergarten. We are thinking about having baby number 2 in 3 months but this is stressing me out so much.
