So my 6 year old son won't shut up. I say this lovingly and not to him, but his teacher keeps emailing me because he is too busy being silly to learn sometimes. I am getting really frustrated because I don't know what else she wants me to do. She has asked me to talk to him, so I talk to him every day about being quiet and some days he does really well, and then some days my brain feels numb because all he has done is talked all day long. I am at a loss here, because I like that he talks all the time, he tells me the most amazing things sometimes, but I don't know how to parent him when I am not around. I have put into place penalties ( no cartoons, early bed time, no wii which just about kills him!) and awesome rewards when he does well ( lunch with mom, special treats, special activities) but it just doesn't matter sometimes...what needs to be done, either the teacher needs to learn how to deal, or my son needs to have worse consequences, looking for some ideas, so fire away!! Thanks!
