My 4 year old just started school in September, which was a staggered start, so his first real full week was the 1st week in October. but has already been excluded twice, due to his behaviour. He is so loving and sensitive but seems to nott be able to control his emotions. He had problems when he was younger with his ears resulting in having grommets. I dont know what to do as the school doesnt want him there and would like him to return to nursery. He feels like he is the worst child ever and noone loves him at school. I just dont know what to do, can anyone help me please???

If the school feels like your son isnt mature enough for (I assume jr kindergarten) then you should listen to the professionals. After all this is their full time job. I would have a sit down meeting with the teachers, listen closely to what they have to say, and come up with a plan for your sons education.

It is more painful when our children hurt than when we hurt. Some good advice my aunt gave me. "feel with your heart, think with your head" meaning, empathize, but make decisions with your brain, not your feelings on the matter.

Like what Amanda said, talk to the teachers and make a plan for what to work on for next year. I'd tell my son that maybe we rushed things a bit, we are going to take some time off, work on some things (maybe already have a plan in place from talking with the teachers and make it sound real fun and exciting the things he is going to get to work on in the next year) and then give it a go next time.

Good luck to you.
