The past 2 weeks my son has been constantly acting up at school. He is 7 years old, in the 1st grade. He lays down when he is supposed to be doing his work. He told the teacher he thought she was a bad teacher. He won't listen when the teacher tells him to do something or to not do something. One time he was burping in another childs face. He has had his bad days before, but lately he is getting sad faces everyday. In his class they have a point system. Each day they start off on 8 points, when they do something bad ect. they get a point or 2 taken away when they are good or do something nice they get points added. Today he came home with 0 points, the past 2 weeks it has been 6 points or less today was the worst with 0 points. They are supposed to go to the principal with 0 points, with 2 points they get a letter home. The teacher has not sent any letters home, he has never been to the principal he does not get punished. He dosen't care if he looses points because there is no time out or anything. I don't want him to get in trouble but I want him to behave and be able to learn at school. How can this happen if he is always acting up with no consiquences?
