Desperate for advice
I have a 5 1/2 year old son who is having a very difficult time in Kindergarten. He is an only child who is academically amazing, very well spoken and very kind. However, he has been to the principal's office several times for being disruptive. The school uses a green, yellow, red light system. When he gets in trouble he has been falling to the floor crying and has little chance to recover from the yellow light to the green and is immediately sent out so as not to disrupt the 27 other students. Our school is a strict Charter school that has a 27 to 1 ratio and the teacher (who is very kind) has her hands full so he has been immediately sent out several times upon any disruption. The other children have seemed to have gotten into the grove very well. They sit in their seats and follow directions pretty well. Some of the children I know, and outside of school they are VERY difficult but in school they manage to pull it together. My son outside of school listens very well (but will be reduced to tears when things don't go his way) but hasn't gotten the grove of school. I have been told it is a socialization issue that there is nothing I can do, he will have to learn it himself. I reward good behavior and he has been taught consequences but when he has his mind set he does what he wants to. I sure could use some tips if anyone has any. Desperate mom.
