School has changed my son... Is there a reason or is this normal?

My son is 5 years old and just started all day kindergarten in August. Since he has been in school his attitude has completely changed. He doesn't want to listen to me or his father. Back talking and doing whatever he wants. We discipline him, like time out and quiet time but nothing is helping... He is acting too grown up. 5 going on 15. Is this normal for a child that started school or is there something I can do??

Oh yes they are learning lots and lots from their peers. Welcome to the school world.

The bad thing about school is they pick up all the kids in the classes bad habits, just stay consistant with whats expected at home and your choice of discipline. its the only way to get things back to 'normal' in your home. but yes its normal. Dont give up You Can and Will do it :)
