  • If this behaviour started after getting a higher class in school, talk to his teacher! Talk to him ask him why he is saying these things and let him know they are hurtful. With my daughter I ignore it and talk to her later when she's calm and being nice. So she gets "attention" with good behaviour but the bad gets her NONE. This is what has worked for me. Also praising her for all the little things she does good helps my daughter.

  • I would talk to his teacher and see how he's doing in class. Bc when my son was in preschool he came home with some mean words too... It happans and it'll keep happening till he learns to just not say them too you. but when he's saying mean words i would talk to him and ask him why, and how he thinks it makes you feel and as long as you keep your cool he'll stop my son did and now he come's up and tells me what the kids say and then says was that bad mom... bc you told me it was.. so just stay calm
