Hi. I agree with Tammy. You should definitely be working closely with the teacher. I doesn't seem to me that you should have to go to the school every day. That almost seems to feed your son. If I act up, my mom will come. It almost seems like a reward. (I'm assuming here that you are a great mom because, hey, you take the time to go to his school when he needs help.)

Here is a link to am interview with the man who is credited with coining the term helicopter parent. He has a program and books called Love and Logic. He has some very practical advice for parents. He might help. There a link to his site at the end of the story.

Best of luck. You are to be commended for being there for your son. Hang in there.

I understand!



1st - If you haven't already, I would meet & discuss with the Teacher.  Maybe he/she can shed some light as to when & why they think this keeps happening.   Maybe he is trying to fit into a group or even impress someone.  Maybe he doesn't get along with the Teacher.



2nd- unfortunately I would enforce a punishment at home.  Praise him for the fact that you don't have this problem at home but stay firm on the fact that this is unacceptable at school.  Usually taking away something he enjoys will do the trick (tv time, video games, to bed early, etc.).
