3rd grade boy..GREAT GRADES...AWFUL BEHAVIOR...HELP
Our son is smart, A-B report cards, only missed 1 on the TAKS math test, and then the behavior column of the report card...N's with TYPED NOTES, "does not respect others" and "does not follow directions". We are at witt's end. Last night his teacher called his mom and let her know that he had officially had his WORST two days of the school year. She called us which led to an evening of conversations and our son stating "I've just been bad lately".
For the last several months he has been rude, sassy, disrespectful *especially towards women*, and just plain awful to be around. The thing is, he knows he's doing it.
We have grounded him, taken electronics away, sent him to bed early, made him apologize to people. Most recently, his dad told him if he had another weekend like one recently where he was just mean to me all weekend, his room would become vacant and everything would be gone. It's seems to have eliminated his attitude towards me but it seems like now it's moved further to school...
Suggestions, help...We asked him if anything was wrong last night at our house, his other house, if there were problems...anything...What now?
