Do you tell the father if the kids are misbehaving knowing that he'll get upset?

My boyfriend sometimes can get carried away. never physical. He talks very loud and he hears one thing and run with it. basically we have different parenting skills.

Well, if his Daddy flies off the handle over silly things and threatens to beat the little boy for minor offences,it's no wonder the poor little kids cries at everything. He is probably frightened. I would suggest a parenting class for you and your boyfriend to take together and maybe a child psychologist to find out how to deal with your little boy's over-sensitivity. That may sound harsh, but you admitted you don't know what to do. I say "call in the professionals".

My policy is what happens in school stays in school. If the teacher has disciplined him for something, why should he be punished twice?

Being sensitive isn't a crime. It may be that his over-sensitivity is a reaction to stress. You don't say how old your son is. Has he only recently started school? Is he the same at home?

the thing is he cries for everything and we don't know how to handle it. we get calls from the teacher 2-3 times a week. he doesn't hurt anyone or break anything but he is getting worse

most of the time it's minor. but thursday the school called me because my son was crying for 45mins due to him not getting a sticker. I told him dad and he just when off. he's saying that he's gonna get a beating when he come's home and i just felt horrible because my son is very sensitive and we both know that.by the time my boyfriend when to pick him up he did calm down and decided to take his games away instead
