It's something everyday. Never anything violent or outrageous, but SOMETHING everday...usually talking too much, not staying in his chair, acting up at lunch, acting up in line, and now and then talking back to the teacher...the teacher and we agree that SOMETHING needs to change because we haven't seen any improvement with his behavior this year. My gut tells me he likes any attention he can get and thinks that he knows better than everyone at school. He doesn't really act up at home but he is constantly talking back - not in a mean way so much, just always giving us a "but...." when we tell him to do something. He thinks that the rules don't apply to him...
We feel like we need to bring some ideas to the meeting but we don't where to start....we don't want him to be isolated but he doesn't seem to know how to control himself...any ideas????
by the way, he isn't adhd...he may be "gifted" but we've never had him tested.
