  • Talk to his teacher and see what you both can do to help him. See if there is a school counselor who can get involved too.

  • Does he live with you? Have there been any changes in his daily life at home? I'm a retired Teaching Assistant from the public school system in Buffalo, NY. I've worked with all kinds and all ages of children, some with special needs. Without knowing some more facts, it's hard to advise you what to do if that's what you're asking or asking for help with.

  • I would talk to his doctor if you can not find a reasonable reason for this... He may be having some learning issues!

  • Of course he is! He's 8 and has some ideas about misbehaving and wants to see if he can get away with it. DO NOT LET HIM!

  • Are you asking for advice or just wanting to vent? Not enough info to give an educated answer.
