Trouble in school?

Does anyone have a kid that gets into trouble in school but not at home esp with another kids who get into trouble following bad behaviors? My 10 yo dd has on the bus and in school. Why do kids do it, just for the thrill of it all or to defy authority or what? If you do how do you handle the discipline?

  • Talk to him and find out why HE thinks this is happening. Is there something going on at school that is not happening at home? Is there some other kids bothering him and he is standing up for himself? Is he falling to peer pressure to act cool? Take him to lunch just the two of you and talk to him about why HE THINKS this is happening....he will probably tell you. Set up clear consequences and stick to them Here are some discipline books which you might helpful   Click on the discipline section.
