If it is a problem at school and not at home, it is something you need to talk to the teacher about. It is THIER dicipline problem, not yours. I was a preschool teacher, and this kind of thing happened all the time. Kudos to you for recognizing that your child can indeed misbehave. Most parents just argued with me and told me that thier kid acted perfectly fine at home, and that I must be lying. It annoyed the hell out of me when parents chose denial over facing the issue. In my toughest cases, we ended up doing a dicipline plan that went from school to home. We would take marks away or have the child earn marks (whichever worked best for the child) to either lose or gain cartoon privleges when they got home. It worked great.
