So DS2 has just moved into year 3 and already he has been in loads of trouble. He has to be seperated from the other kids in order to get work done (and to stop him from distracting them too), this is something which has been happening since year 1. He has been trouble for bullying, messing around, generally just being a pain and last night his teacher told me:
"what concerns me the most is that he genuinly doesn't care about being told off. If he doesn't mind getting into trouble, what else do we have?"
I'm really dreading secondary school and his teenage years. I've been hoping he will grow out of this since he was 4, he's now almost 8 and doesn't look like he's about to change any time soon, if anything it's getting worse.
Is his hearing ok? May sound a daft question but friend of mine has ds very similar to yours. They've just discovered he's tone deaf!! He can hear male voices reasonably but doesn't hear female voices until they scream! As a result he's only ever heard his mum screaming at him and he's then learned to kick out and be aggresive. School just labelled him as a troublemaker. Also, how do you deal with his behaviour? What punishment do you use?
