Today, I got another note home from my 5-year old's school. He threw rocks again at recess and when told to "stand out," he resisted by laying on the ground. This is the fifth time he has gotten a note, and I am afraid there is a real problem. My son says he was throwing rocks at one child because she was playing with the child he wanted to play with. Every time he gets in trouble, it is because someone else is playing with "his friend." Jealousy and possessiveness in a small child cannot be normal??? He is an only child and more than a little spoiled, but very excited to be with other kids. His behavior is not a problem in the classroom and he is fine academically. He does have some speech problems and has gone to speech therapy since he was three. Have tried various discipline approaches, spanking, early bedtime, taking away toys and t.v. not giving hugs when he cries about being punished, etc... I have gone to the school and monitored his behavior at recess on several occasions, but he does not act out then. I have told the principal to call me if he does anything else, and I will come and get him. We have also given permission to school for paddling, but this has not happened, yet. Any suggestions?
