I am not sure what to do. I have a 7 yr old son who has behavior problems at school. It began last year when he started kindergarden when he would just shutdown and refuse to respond, then it turned into having problems sitting still in class (lots of fidgeting with things or getting out of his seat). By the end of the year it had resulted in throwing things in class to hitting or kicking his teachers whenever he got into trouble. His doctor felt he was hyperactive and perscribed Guanfacine, which worked for like a month before he resorted back to his bad behavior. He never had any problems before kindergarden, he was a great student in pre-school, he never had these problems in day care, and I never witnessed this behavior at home. So I didn't know how to help his teachers since I was never around when the behavior occured. His teachers and social workers have tried many things that have not worked. I became so bad, he was kicked out of school on an average of 2-3 times a week. They even had him labeled as "emotional disabled" so that they can get state assistance and resources to help him. When he started first grade, I told him it was a new beginning and he was doing really great this year, but in the last two weeks he had 3 incidences. I am just so afraid he is beginning to get into the pattern he was in last year. I don't know if my son has a disorder or not. Doctor said he was hyperactive, but I wouldn't think it was early stages of ADHD because he learns just fine, he obviously can pay attention enough to get good grades. Where can I go to get help? How do I dicipline him? His father makes him stand in the corner until he can discuss why he behaved the way he did, but my son is so stubborn I think he would stay in there all night, so I usually have to coerce an answer from him.
