Upset asks:

My 6yr old grandson's teacher complains that he gets up too often from desk, plays hand games with others, and therefore doesn't keep to himself etc

Teacher rates this as bad conduct and puts a "red" mark on his notebook. Grandson was worried mom would punish him so he erased the red mark and went over it in "green" which is "good".  Mom made him apoligize to teacher but for playing a hand game with girl student he received another "red mark".  I am concerned that grandson will get frustrated because he insists that he is not doing nothing bad in school yet teacher is rating his behavior as "bad".

What the Expert Says:

Sorry to hear about your grandsons bad marks in school!  He may be the best student academically, but if his behaviors are disruptive and perhaps they detract him from completing his work on time or at all, his grades and academic progression will suffer.

How is he at home?  Doe she get distracted easily?  Does he seem to be fidgety?  Does he misplace things easily?  Is he forgetful?  Does he get distracted while watching a movie and can't get through it?  If yes, he may have attention problems that his parents should discuss with his regular health care provider.

Best regards.
