Not sure if this is where I should be posting this but here goes. Today I received an email from one of difficult child's Special Education. teachers. If anyone has seen my posts in the general forum this is the one he has a major personality conflict with. She told me today he was in the time out room for 3 1/2 minutes (not really that long). In her email she also asked if I have any ideas on how to help him have a better opinion of her. I feel so bad but I have no ideas. We talk to him nightly about it. It gets us nowhere. He is emotionally at about a 3 or 4 year old level so when we try to reason it doesn't help. There was a conflict when he was in 2nd grade with the same teacher. I really think difficult child has decided he isn't going to budge on this. Any suggestions? I haven't even responded to her email yet because I'm at a loss on ideas to give her on how to increase his opinion of her. Her personality type is not one that difficult child is likely to warm up to.
