Hi I am really frustrated and dont know what to do. Jaden my 5 year old started kindergarten this year, his teacher constantly tells me that he is disruptive in class, he hits and throws things, doesnt listen or do his assignments.
When he is good, he is great, helping the teacher and doing his work and also helping other students.
But as of late he has been very very bad, simply not listening or doing anything he is told. The mother and i are separated so Jaden and his sister 3yr old Bella spend half the time with me and half the time with their mother. They dont listen at all at their mothers house, when they are with me they get a little crazy but when i put my foot down they stop and obey.
Obviously the mother and i do things differently and let them get away with different things.
My biggest concern is that he might one day get kicked out of school. also who wants to be the parent of that kid other parents tell their kids not to hang out with cause hes trouble or whatever. I dont know what to do. I talk to him calmly and i try to tell him that not listening will get him in trouble, i have tried taking toys from him and putting him in time out and rewarding him and trying to redirect. none of this seems to be working. WHAT DO I DO???View Thread
