Help with disciplining my 2nd grade son, who is lying and not listening to his teacher.
His teacher called yesterday, we had a big discussion with his teacher, we had a big discussion at home. He has been grounded and had all "screen" time taken away from him for a week.
We have discussed with him how lying is wrong and how if he is going to do something either own up to it or don't do it.
Well, after what my husband and I thought was a very clear conversation last night, I got a call again today from his teacher and he did it again.
The children keep their lunches at their desks so he has easy access to it, his teacher claims our son is the only one who has a problem eating at his desk.
Our son is bright, funny, wonderful boy. He has tested for gifted and talented and has no trouble understanding that what he is doing is wrong.
So what I need help with is a more effective way to deal with him. I do NOT want to spank my son, I don't believe in that type of behavior, my husband would like to for the "shock" value and to make clear to our son that lying is not tolerated. I need getting through to him and helping him stop this behavior. When asked why he does it, he just answers that he doesn't know.
I hope someone can help us. I will continue to look on this site for more help. Thanks
