I went to go pick up my kids from school today and my son's teacher tells me she needs to have alittle talk with me. I am like what now? (to myself).
I just want to make it short (no details)
It turns out he has been using inappropiate language which surprised me I know he aint no saint but he has been starting to hang out with the boys (he is only 7) I have notice a change in him but never like this or so soon. He was grounded this past weekend for moving his folder at school 3 times. Boys will be boys but damn what to do? My dh is really gonna let him have it this time first times were warnings now I don't know and my son knows this....We need to nip it in the bud now!!! Any experience on this???

Its up to you who he hangs out with and who he doesnt. I would encourage kids hanging out at your house. You and your husband need to decide together what the discipline will be for the bad language. I dont think he should be punished horribly if he hears swearing at home all the time. It also needs to be considered that you have noticed a change in his behavior (but he has been starting to hang out with the boys (he is only 7) I have notice a change in him but never like this or so soon.) that perhaps should of been addressed before now.
Remember to fit the punishment with the crime. Waht lesson will your son learn from this? How will this punishment benefit him? How will it help with the trouble he has been in.
