First I would like to say that I am not a troll. I am very embarrassed that I let this behavior get this far with him. My son is 6. He will be 7 in January. He used to be such a sweet caring loving child, but ever since he started school last year he has become very abusive to all of his school mates. I do not condone violence in my house. We do spank but only for extreme behaviors. I do time outs and removal of favorite items.
A little back story. I am not with his father. Bash all you will but I made a lot of mistakes in my past. Including reproducing with the 2 men that I did. Both men are not involved with my children and that is their decision not mine (although I am happier this way).They do not support my children either. I am a single mother.
My son started kindergarten last year and started picking up behaviors from the other kids mind you my child had been in daycare and preschools since he was a year so we can not blame him not being near kids before this. All of his new friends would play power rangers and ninjago. This whole time I had been stearing away from shows like that because I knew like all boys would, that he would act out like the shows. Well after a bunch of whining and begging and good behavior I let him watch some of it. YEA BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE!! Now he is crazy. He is constantly hitting, karate chopping and being a "ninja" around all his friends and he is getting abusive towards them. Like all the kids play it but no one connects when they "battle" exvept my son. He doesn't understand that you can't do that. He honestly watched maybe 6 episodes of each show. I have banned all but Nick Jr and Disney Jr on all the TVs in my house. My 3 year old is happy but my oldest hates me.
He started acting out in school and has been in the principal's office 4 times already for hitting. My town has a no tolerance policy and he is about to get suspended for 21 days if he hits someone again. I plan on meeting with the principal today to discuss ways to get him to stop.
Yesterday he was on the bus going to the after school program and the kids were hitting each other with seatbelts. Well my son who should know better) decides to bash a kid on the head with it. Thankfully the kid is ok. I have taken away all the stuff that he loves more than anything. Including Halloween and all the activities that go with it.
Why can't he just understand what he is doing is wrong?? I failed as a mother.... I hate the way my kids have become. I give them everything and anything. I bust my ass so that they can have nice things while I have crap. My only pair of shoes are FLIP FLOPS dammit. I have nothing... Well today I plan on hitting payless and getting some shoes and rain boots for myself)
UGH Any advise would be great. Sorry it is so long... Vent over
