He has really been struggling with talking, being silly, and following others instead of doing what he knows is right. He and I had a talk about that today as he was leaving – that his red day did NOT make him a loser, it just showed him that he needed to work on these things….that if a friend is doing something that he knows is wrong, he does not need to follow along and join in J Can you remind him of these things too? He is a typical 6 year old boy…they all need these reminders. He is also struggling with constantly tattling or in his case, giving me a play by play of what everyone else is doing instead of doing what he is supposed to be doing…we are going to be working on as a class, what they need to tell me and what they need to take care of on their own….things to tell me would be when they are being bullied, someone is hurting them or is hurt, etc….not that someone is using a crayon when they should be using a pencil....
I am so tired of getting emails like this from his teacher! I have talked to him EVERY day about this. I have offered her solutions (she has taken none of them) Every time she emails me it's just like this. I feel like I am not doing good enough, because he is not doing what he is suppose to do, and I feel like I can't do enough because she won't take any of my idea's into considerations. How would you handle a teacher like this? The dots that she is talking about is a color system that they use, green is good, yellow is a warning, red is a time out. When I have talked to her about this she just minimizes everything like it's not a huge deal, but she emails me over and over about it...UGHHHH I am getting really frustrated!!

Tell her to STOP e-mailing you and start calling you instead. Tell her this is not the way to handle things. Then she may be less apt to call everyday!! Also like a PP said... meet with her and the principal, maybe even forward these e-mails to the principal as well. My question would be... is he really that big of a discipline problem or is she just not able to handle her class well???
