I'm at a loss. Ever since he was in Kindergarten he's loved school..... Until now. He's been back talking the teacher, saying inappropriate things, has had a detention after school, and today he's having a lunch detention.
From K-4th grade he was doing great. His grades were good, he was in student council, and was happy.
This year he's taking guitar lessons (which he loves), will be playing basketball soon, and played baseball through the Summer. He also has a dirtbike he loves to ride....So he stays busy.
I can't figure out what's going on. So when the Teacher emailed me today, and told me what he's doing, I asked her if I can come sit in today after lunch. So when he walks in, he'll see me. I know he won't be happy, but maybe he'll realize I'm serious when I say, if he doesn't behave at school, I will be there.... What do you think? Thanks!
(He's now in the 5th grade.)

I think that's a great idea. How are his grades? I would say that if he keeps getting detention for acting out that you will take away some of his privileges. If grades are bad then I would take away the extracurricular sports.
