Well its like this...........

They (school) have been told to log any concerning events, now what the EP/Autism Specialist means is general problems throughout the day, either oppositional or anxiety or whatever and how it was resolved.

School have gone overboard and homebook has been inundated with every little thing that has gone wrong. He still asks nicely for time out and doesnt get it and so gets upset (they will work it out one day). They go on and on to every proff they meet about his guns issue and imaginary world issue (please note he has never attacked a child yet!) using sticks/lego/fingers and shooting. I have found it depressing to be honest owing to the disasterous meetings/letters of the last week or so but this one made me chuckle grin

"DS" seems to have an obsession with vampires at the moment, his teeth dont help I know so hope they grow back quickly again. I've asked "DS" not to do his vampire impressions as some of the other children don't like it at all.

Now unless they are completely out of sync they would know its halloween coming up. DS is watching scooby doo a lot lately and there are some childrens programmes with halloween themes on telly for his age. To top it all he has lost his front teeth which he is thrilled over as he wants to be a vampire for trick or treat and so has two rather nice pearly whites to flash grin

Now I am supposed to talk to DS on each thing they put in the book and help rectify it. Obviously they have jumped on this as a new violent fantasy (as they keep calling them) What do I do about this one guys? Elastoplast his chops so he cant flash? Take halloween off the calender? Cant tell him vampires only come out at night as I wont get any sleep then lol grin

I was seriously laughing my head off at this one!

Lovely grin sounds pretty much what a load of kids will be doing at this time of year . Do you sometimes think teachers live in a parallel universe?

"violent fantasy" they really are setting up to be some sort of Hannibal character aren't they. Do any of them have little boys at all?

My ds2 [nt] spends a large proportion of his life playing dinosaur island with his friends at school. This involves dragging other members of the class [who like it and have their own parts as fodder] back to their island and devouring them. About half the class play this game most days.....violent fantasy school!

Buy him a soft toy Dracula to wave about and they will remember he is little and chill a little.

They are stamping on anything he wants to be at the moment so basically he isnt allowed to be anything. Harry Potter was ok for a week till he did a magic spell and told the teacher the spell was to keep her quiet because she was being too noisy grin

The only way to get rid of a vamp is a steak but if I mention that I fear it will be social services intervention lol!

His answer to me was that him and another boy were both vamps and were running around hissing and catching each other in the playground. HELLOOOOO interaction WITH a child!!!! now that is a turn up for the books fangs or not grin

Lucky they aren't teaching my lad at this time of year. A role play of "Vlad the Impaler" (he has Romanian heritage) would really freak them out! There are SO many wicked vampy stories from Romania DS always has loads to scare his mates with ; )

Go into school with your won face painted and give the class teacher a carved pumpkin for the class together with a book of ghost stories. In your shoes I'd be telling them to take a flipping chill pill! For me it's a sign that your child is joining in with the playgrounds contemporary topical interests and that he's blending into "mainstream" society. FFS have they not noticed the tescos aisles have been full of halloween stuff for at least a month?

How do they interpret his interest in Santa Claus? Is that also seen as odd?

bochead I would love to meet your DS!

I am ignoring the comment as trivial along with the rest. The only thing I keep stressing on with DS is that it is not appropriate to play guns or hiss like a vamp within the classroom or 1 to 1 setting or at the dinner table. I have told him that it is totally fine with me and totally appropriate to be whatever character he wants to be during playtime.

Unless he physically hurts a child then that would be different case altogether. He needs to be taught social skills and how to play with others. School are doing crap at this as they just let him run on his own around the edge of the field at playtime and dont encourage or assist playing with others to help him with these skills. He cannot cope with too many ppl so at the end of play he wants and asks for quiet time. So to be honest the very fact he was actually playing with a boy of his own accord is brill!

I sometimes think that they are the paranoid ones

Oh Coffee, if they had an ounce of common sense eh!

Good job my littlest goes to SN school where they're cool with just about My babe telling everyone the tooth fairys a "B*tch" and that if Sion Corn comes down our chimney he's gonna "Kick the f***ing B*****ds teef in"

Doing a Vlad the Impaler at halloween?...Violent fantasy my a*se!
You gotta laugh or else you'd go bonkers!

I am rolling with laughter now at your youngun! grin

There beholds a child that is forthright, honest and means business bless him!

We took a walk to the chippy tonight with the dog and DS was chatting to this man in the cue showing him is pearly whites and asking if he made a good vampire. The old chap played along nicely and gave him 10p to put in his trick or treat box lol!

I do laugh you have to smile
