Couping with 6 yrs old boy

Hi there,

I am just newly joined this. So I dont know exactly how to put it. My son who is 6 yrs old, seems to be disinterest in writing at school also when I made him to practice at home. Most his teachers told me that he is totally changed. From an obidient boy to naughty. Often he did not complete the writing which was given on the blackboard. Not only that, there were 2 ocassions that my son did not complete his class tests, though he knew the completion of the questions and the answers. He made excuses like he's tired, or the students are standing in front of him that he got distracted. His hand writing gone from fine writing to unreadable. I must tell you this. From where we are staying his school is the best. Please help me on this. Thank you very much and I appreciate...

well my 6 year old is totally uninterested in school period.he has a hard time staying focused or motivated.his spelling and reading and math are suffering.he may repeat 1st grade.he lays his head on the desk and refuses to pick it up.he gets plenty of rest and food and attention at home so we tried a chart of responsibility which he got a prize at the end of the week if he got all smilely faces but it was not consistently working for him.but maybe it will for your to your childs councilor also they have good choices and ideas and classes to help with the moptivation.

Have his eyes checked, he may not be able to see the blackboard.

If it's just misbehavior then you need to put your foot down and explain what this behaviors concequences are and follow through on them.

I am going through the same thing only it's with my 6 year old daughter. She doesn't finish her work in class and often won't answer questions; scribbles on purpose and often won't go to the bathroom when she needs too! The school has suggested a phycologist. In Kindergarten we never had any of these problems. She will do her work at home with me no problem. I have sat in the classroom and she didn't know I was there. Several of the other children acted the same/ Many of which I know and saw in the classroom the pervious year and they sure never acted that way before. I am questioning the teacher. I have a feeling she is much more kind in front of an audience. I don't believe my daughter is an angel of any kind. (she has tested me plenty) however she is a very bright girl and last year loved school and learning to read. How can a change in attitude happen so fast for no reason.

seeing is believing...ask the teacher about sitting in class. once you've seen what's going on in class ( his behavior,that of his friends)you might be able to narrow it down.even it's to assist the teacher with an activity . it could be as simple as changing his seat, or getting an eye test, hopefully not a disability but "show" him your involved for the long haul. good luck.

I wish I could help you, but I am also going thru something similar. My son started the year great and slowly he has gotten in trouble almost everyday for the past 2-3 weeks. Not listening to the teacher and just doing things when he feel like it. We say every morning to have a good day and be good. Today was the worst when he actually mooned some other kids. I have NO idea where he got that from. All I know is that he is 5 in K-garten and is already been to the principal and now is on the list for what happened today. When I ask him why he does things he say because he is bad. I am afraid that the more he does things the more he gets in trouble and then he hears more that he is not being a good boy. I am really worried and I don't know what to do too. I hope that some advice comes for both of us. Good luck.
