So the teachers are having trouble with ds at school. They said they have 5 other kids the same in his class. I have spoken daily with them since beginning of school this year and have taken since last week dealing with it once he got home. So I will speak to the teachers and if they say he has had a horrible day he gets dealt with at home. He knows the punishment and has been 75% better this past week.
I have asked if they want him to change class but they said no. I asked how they deal with it with punishment and they said they "take a smiley face away" and they asked how I do it. I told them after years of trying to find something that works that all I do is talk to him about what I expect. I got told they have 20 odd kids in their class and don't have the time. So I put my hands up in defeat and told them they need to find their own way then.
Friday I got asked if I have seen someone about his behavior. I said no because he is pretty much fine at home. Yes, he can be full on. Yes, he is full of beans from son up to son down (lol). Yet, he listens to reason and has really settled down now I have learnt what is best for him and ways to handle this. It is not my problem they can't seem to find the time between 3 teachers (yes 3) to have one of them talk to him. I have done my best to help and it does seem to be working.
I'm getting frustrated with the teachers more than ds, because last year he was fine. Last year he had a very soft spoken, calm and lovely teacher. This year he has a quite nasty and strict teacher. Someone who, if she doesn't like said child, she is on their case from the moment they walk in. It's like she wants to be angry at them. They have like a good cop bad cop happening.
Has anyone dealt with this sort of thing? How can I help the teachers when they don't seem to want to listen?
