    Default Parents of school aged children

    Do you give consequences at home for bad behaviour at school? Or what happens at school stays at school with the teachers handling?

    We might chat about it to see if maybe there was a better way to do something (but they wouldnt be in trouble). If it was something major I would possibly punish at home but it would have to be major.

    Thanks for your replies! My son has had an issue with talking in class. He has been on the bench at play times quite a few times for to getting 3 reminders. Generally we have a chat about it (he tells me, the teacher doesn't). Today he has come home and said he went to buddy class. After going on the bench he continued to talk in class. We have had a chat about it and he doesn't seem at all phased about the consequence he recieved. I am wondering whether I should take some technology away from him over the weekend jut to show that his teachers nor will we tolerate him not following rules at school. Wondering if this is a bit harsh though. Thoughts anyone?

    How old is he? It seems to be ongoing and something needs to be done. I would consider taking something away perhaps just for a day over the weekend

    If he isnt taking the teachers rules in class seriously then yeah i think it's your job to step in to aide the teacher and in turn your helping your child. But how you do it is totally upto you.

    What your thinking of doing is something i would and have done and its been pretty effective.

    No, he does not get punished twice. I encourage him to tell me whenever he is in trouble at school and we discuss any problems. I don't think he would do that if he knew he would be in trouble a second time at home.

    He is 7! It does seem ongoing. We normally deal with these types of things by having discussions but the fact that he is disrespecting his teachers often now by chatting is bothering me. I don't want it to become an even more regular issue.

    I support what happens at school with ongoing things. Once off like getting carded for wrestling in the playground, no.

    I even made a chart for DS to take to school to encourage good behaviour and follow the teachers rules. Have a chat to the teacher and see if there is something you can come up with. For example if he doesn't have to sit on the bench he gets a star. 10 stars = something rewarding. We had great success with ours.
