My son's kindergarten teacher pulled me over this morning before class and told me that we NEED to have a meeting about my son and his lack of focus. Also that he will not listen in class. He is playing guns and swords. He knows that I do not allow that because although it is fake you just never know. I have explained to him the punishment for not listening and he knows they get worse with continued bad behavior. What do I do!!!!Answer Question
If it's becoming a problem at school, consider getting him evaluated for an attention disorder. No it doesn't mean you have to put him on meds, but most eval centers will help teach them coping skills. Could it be his age? Sure. If he's not purposely being defiant, and just almost seems driven to it, please have him checked out. The earlier you can get him some help the better. Often times, kids like this are extremely intelligent (my son is very much so) but they have to get all that energy lined up and put to good use. The teacher is likely to label him anyway, and believe me, teachers talk.

OP, the place you had him tested, do they offer special classes/tutoring sessions for learning differences? So even if he's borderline or doesn't have and and you know there's a problem, maybe they could still help, I dunno. There are several centers in the town I live in and all offer some sort of counseling or classes to teach coping skills. I hope you figure it out, I'm sure its endless frustration for you.
