difficult child had one teacher at school who was not "on board". She fought and fought to make him sit still in time out when he couldn't behave in class and finally decided his behavior wasn't just lack of structured discpline. She told me Wednesday and asked if I had suggestions, and I said yes, quietly have someone call me and I will remove him from school for some made up reason. I don't want to be picking him up all the time, but I also don't want him to figure out that he can behave like that at school and no one can really stop him. So yeah, she's finally on board. Boo! He either overheard or a buddy overheard and relayed to him (I swear he was out the door - so did teacher). So he spent yesterday pushing EVERY teacher's buttons trying to get sent home. Which I didn't know til this morning. So enter the rest of the story. He had gymnastics last night. It was the teacher that will not work with him. Per the program director, someone is supposed to go out and keep difficult child directed during class, but this particular teacher just thinks difficult child needs more firm discipline and he'll figure it out. Anyway, last night, director wasn't there, teacher sent me off the floor, HE would handle difficult child alone, and guess what he did? SENT difficult child HOME BECAUSE HE COULDN'T BEHAVE. Reinforced what I didn't know difficult child had overheard at school... I was angry last night because there is a workable solution in place if I didn't have to prove to this gymnastics teacher that my kid isn't just a spoiled brat. Now I'm really angry cause difficult child has tested the theory he can manipulate a situation with his behavior and gymnastics teacher played right into it.
