I have a 5 yr old in his 3rd year of preschool due to age restraints (and I know he's a little bored). I keep getting notes sent home from school about how terrible he is. He hits other kids and attempts to hit teachers, he covers his ear when teachers give instructions, he is very angry and refuses to listen to anyone. At home, he's great! The worst I get is an evil look or a stomped foot when he's mad. (I don't put up with anything more) I know he's got a case of "only child syndrome" as well as "dead beat dad issues", but what can I do when he's not with me to correct this aweful behavior. I can't make the school crack down any harder. Yesterday, I took away all violent toys until things change at school. This includes guns, power rangers, ninja turtles, and the like. I've had millions of talks with him about it with no luck. I'm at a loss, and I want to get this fixed before kindergarten next fall! WHAT CAN I DO???
