  • sounds like he is very very frustrated on a day to day basis. do you have any idea what might be frustrating him? is he developmentally on level with his peers? could it be a speech or language issue?

  • I have talked to his teacher and she said that she dont know what could be causing this. he is normaly really good in school. and this past week he has been acting up. at school and at home but nothing has changed. could it be a faze or something
