My son (7) has been hitting the aids and bus driver assist. He has done this a few times when he gets mad. Usually the driver assistant because he was not first off the bus. He has issues with always wanting to be first. Me and the teacher say pick your battles with him and that is one you should just let be. He is in the first seat on the bus so natually he should be the first off but they will hold him back so another kid can get off first? the aid has to move in order for my son to move so he will hit her in the arm if she blocks him. Then it sets off for a bad day for him. The aids! Well they might have just said no a few more times than he wants and he gets mad and hits them in the arm or kicks them in the leg. He has never hit his teacher he said he wanted to to her but she tells him he will get in big trouble. Not sure what the aids are doing to prevent him or if he just does not give anyone any warning. So he does not hit kids or anyone in our family! He wouldn't even think about hitting his brother who in fact on several occcanions have given him a bloody nose! and he is younger only 3 years old but he will not touch him. He wouldn't even think of hitting me or his dad. I just don't get why he thinks he can hit them. I can only think maybe it is because they can't hit him back. I told him if they can't I can and I will. I hate spanking especially because it just doesn't work for him. He gets even madder and becomes the room recker. his own room, and I make him pick it up when he has calmed down. Anyhow we don't know what to do. Last week he went to Saturday school for hitting one of the aids and he was there from 8 am to 100pm becuase he refused to do his work. ONly until the teacher said well I guess I will see you SUnday did he start working. She said something about Sat school this time and he calm down real quick. But we just don't know how to get him to stop hitting! Any suggestions? thanks all in advance! Sorry for all the horrible spelling and english errors. Jere'
