I'm extremely nervous for this new school year to start because my daughter (12) and son (9) got into a ton of trouble last year. What can I do or say to help the kids make right choices at school? For example my son will come right out and say mean things to kids he doesn't like,or he'll goof off in class when he needs to do his work. The teachers last year had to drag my stubborn kid to the office,and he's also thrown temper tantrums, really bad ones like tipping his desk over. My daughter does almost the same thing accept she will be a witch to people she hates or doesn't want anything to do with and she doesn't seem to see how she behaves. Then she hates the teacher or whoever has to correct her. I've TRIED really HARD to tell my kids how they should act and have consequences for their bad choices. But I would love nothing more than to have a smooth school year with no phone calls home about my kids being trouble makers.Answer Question
