According to his teacher, my 7-year-old boy is doing very well academically. However, his behavior needs improvement. they have a "Green/Yellow/Red system in the classroom (red being a note sent home). Since September, he's gotten red about 6 times. Doesn't seem like a lot - however, it is for screaming in the halls, spitting, sometimes hitting (flailing his arms), not paying attention in class (he sat on his head during story time today). We've tried praising when he gets "green" each day; we've tried punishing for yellow or red behavior (no TV, no friends over, no playing with favorite toy). At home - he's mostly well-behaved and follows directions, helps set the table, picks up toys, etc. He does continue to have periodic potty accidents after school/weekends when he's playing since he doesn't want to stop playing to use the bathroom (only once did it happen at school) but I don't know if this is related.
