I don't really know where it came from and I don't know what to do. I am ready to knock my son into next week. Just today he smacked a little girl who sits by him in the face twice. . Also found out its the norm for him to pick on her. Poor little girl is a quiet little girl. The teacher hoped her nature would rub off on my son. But no he's taken to bullying her.
The scary part is I think he likes her. And his way of getting her attention is to hit her. My Dh and I sat down and talked to Ds. Dh said things like do you ever see me hit mommy??. And we asked him if he wanted to be her friend. And he said yes. So of course we told him that she is not going to be his friend if he hits her. And suggested that he say something like"Hi Destiny how are you today??" And of course he was told to apologize tomorrow. But I am at wits end.
Sounds like he's experiencing emotions that he doesn't know how to deal with. Did you tell him under no circumstances does he a hit girl? Sounds like you and dh did the right thing.

You tell him not to hit, but when he does, he gets hit. That does not make sense to a kid. It doesn't make sense to me, and I'm an adult. By the way, if DH is the only one who hits with the "bad boy stick" guess who becomes afraid of dad. Take it from someone who has been in that situation. You need to take him to school and set up an appointment with him, girl, and her parents. The kids need to get their emotions out and the parents need to help them. Not just the teacher. Good luck.
