Hi! I have a 5 year old son who has had behavior issues for many years now. In preschool at age three and four he would hit kids for no reason, push, shove, cut in line etc. He seemed to get better in preschool during this last year (when he was four) but still had much of the same problems, just seemed to be less often (not everyday, but at least once a week...a three-day preschool week). Now we have just started kindergarten. We have had two and one-half days so far and the teacher has already sent me home a note regarding his behavior and I had a long talk with her on Friday. Seems my son pokes other kids, has to have his own way, takes toys from others and has been saying naughty words like "poop" and "fart-pants", etc. He also tends to get into other children's faces to talk with them and demands an immediate answer to his questions when talking with others. These are all things we battle with at home as well and I am at my wits end as to what to do to correct the problem. We give him time outs, take toys away, send him to his room, make him go to bed early...but no concenqence seems to hurt bad enough to make him change his behavior...which is also what his teacher has said. My son just turned 5 June 27th and I asked the teacher if she feels he's too immature for school and she'd like to wait until Labor Day to decide that. He wants friends so badly but my fear is that we are only two days into the school year and we have already started off on such a bad foot. The kids are all turned off by his behavior and don't want to play with him. They also see that he is "the bad kid" in class and he's getting that stigma. He really has never had many friends who want to play with him over the years. I've taken him to a psychologist but only recently so we've only had one visit with her. I feel like he exhibits the impulsivness' of ADHD but not the attentiveness and he really can sit still and quiet when needed. I don't know what to do. I sit home on pins and needles everyday he's in school because I'm afraid of what his behavior has been and what I'm going to hear when I pick him up. Does anyone have any advice.
