What the Expert Says:

Dear Marie,

You may want to observe your son's behavior first hand by staying and helping out a time or two, just so you see for yourself how he interacts with his teachers and the other children. You can get a good feel of how the teachers lead the classroom, if they use praise to motivate the children and if they use age appropriate discipline.

Some children go to preschool before they are completely ready. If your son is one of the youngest in his class this may be the case. Please talk to his teachers and make sure he is where he should be.

You can also call our e-mail our hotline for more parenting assistance.  Our counselors are available 24 hours, 7 days a week to help parents and kids of all ages.  We also have an excellent parenting website you may find helpful: www.parenting.org   Keep reaching out and let us know if we can help again!

Best wishes to you and your son,

Cynthia, Counselor

You can create a social story to show him how to behavior. Most kids are visual learners so by seeing how to act may help. Good Luck
