My daughter is 7 years old and in 2nd grade her grades are not an issue but her behavior is horrible. Just to make it clear there have been three grading periods and the first one she was A/B and the next two she has been straight A's. But she comes home day after day after day on level (that's how they rate the behavior here) and it'll be for things like not staying in her seat, talking, being distruptive, and etc. Her father and I have done everything we can think of to help her we even had a meeting with her counsler and teacher. They suggested doing a behavior chart which we did start but it's the same thing still. It's almost like she can't be good at school. We thought maybe she's bored but we just don't know. We have taken toys away, punshied her, taken t.v. away, grounded her for the weekend.... Nothing is working.... We don't know what else we can do and lately we have had an issue with her lying (we dealt with that and it seems to be better) but this behavior in school can't keep going like this. And yes we've heard oh she's ADD or ADHD but we also know that her school is looking at her being in the Gifted and Talented program and for Advanced Acemdiacs.... So basically we are just at a loss of what to do with her.... PLEASE help...
