He doesnt listen to the teacher, he talks back, wanders around, doesnt do his work, argumentive, disrespectful, wild and out of control. He doesnt act like that at home and he listens i tried punishment i tried time out i tried bring school home for the night no tv no fun talking even a litle bribing ive been explaing why its important but im all out of ideas. What should i do?Answer Question
I use a behavior chart each day. I have the chart divided up into 7 boxes (we go all day), and I give a sticker for each hour that the behavior was acceptable. I send it home and the parents are to sign it and send it back. You could provide a reward after 3 good days. For me, if the child earns 5 out of 7 stickers it was a good day. I don't expect perfection or little robots,but I expect the things you mentioned most of the time. (Heck, we all have bad days.) Many students respond well, but you do get the occasional child who does not care about the chart. You need clear consequences for poor behavior days (no tv, not dessert, go to room....whatever you feel is appropriate). Rewards don't have to be bought---a trip to the library, park, staying up 15 min late....that kind of thing. It works best when the parents and teacher are in agreement and work together. Good luck! Suggest this to the teacher.

Oh---one more thing---it has to be used daily---expect it to be brought home every day unless the teacher is absent. Ask for it, call the school if you don't get it. Consistent and clear consequences are needed!!! Allow your child to list consequences and rewards too. It makes the set up more valuable to him or her.
