My 5 and a half year old son will be starting Kindergarten next year, I kept him a year extra in preschool, because last year he just wasn't ready. He is a very intelligent little boy and knows what they are talking about in school and understands perfectly. My problem is that he is now always trying to make everyone laugh...he just got in trouble today for mocking his teacher....he didn't repeat what she said, he just made a face at her and wouldn't take her seriously. Dylan (my son) is an only child and always will be, his teachers think he may be doing this b/c at school that is his time to be around a lot of children. He is very smart and I want him to do well in school next year and he will if I can just get him to focus and know when he has to take things seriously and when is the proper time to be silly. The talk I had with him today I really do believe he understood, but I really need to make sure the lesson sticks....I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and would just like some advice...I want Dylan to do his best and I know he can if we can just get him to really focus. Thank you for any help I could get!!
