My 5 year old is very angry at school. Does anyone have any ideas that I can suggest to school that we can work together with to try and improve the situation?
The teacher has approached me on 3 occassions to tell me that my son has been angry, disruptive or defiant when asked to pack the toys away and sit down for 'carpet time'.
I asked my son why he gets cross and he says he doesn't know or more recently that carpet time is boring.
This week (4th occassion) the teacher has asked me to sign a consent form for a pyscologist to assess him and his behaviour. I am devastated! I have no problems with anger from him at home or social situations involving other children and do not feel that his behaviour is bad enough to warrant this and feel that the teaching team are quick to 'label' children and then pass the buck to some other 3rd party. Does anyone have any ideas that I can suggest to school that we can work together with to try and improve the situation? If other methods do not work I will consent to the psycologist as I do not want my child's education to be hindered by this behaviour but at the same time feel that we should try different strategies before resorting to the psycologist. Please help, I am so worried about this.
