Any idea how to get a 5 year old to quit acting out.

My daughter is really bored at school. She is in Kindergarten but last year when her brother was in this class she was learning all the stuff he brought home. He is now in 1st and she still likes to learn what he is doing. So instead of showing her class and teachers how smart she is she just won't answer or acts out instead. She is by far not an ADD child although the school keeps suggesting this. She got so mad because the teachers were trying to get her to do an assignment at class today and wouldn't "leave her alone" that she chose to pee her pants. She hasn't peed her pants in years. If she decides that today is one of those days that she isn't going to do something she will absolutely refuse and not do anything at school and is actually flunking tests because she just doesn't want to do anything that day. She is a smart kid, but I cannot convince her to show the school this.

Thanks Sara, but the problem is we live litteraly in the middle of knowwhere. So this school is the only option we have unless we pick up and move. After talking with some others, we may be in luck if this year is ever over with. Next year the teacher she will get is great to challenge each child and help them whereever their isssues are, not just dealing as a group and move on when some are ready and not verifying what others really do know. So hope fully it will get better.

it sounds like you need a new school! you know your daughter best and it sounds like she isn't being challenged enough.
