Me and ds5 teacher

are now working together on his behavior. 

He is slipping in school in the listening department, BUT it is not affecting his learning.  thankfully. 

At home, he is sneaking foods, trying to play dad to the baby. Tries to tell me what to do. Just not listening period. 

So when his report card came, it showed he dropped points in the listening department. So when i picked him up yesterday from school, me and his teacher had a talk, with him involved. 

She was shocked at his behavior at home. Ds admitted to everything but still cant give a reason why he is not listening and sneaking things. 

So she made a behavioral chart. If there is a mark on it from home, he misses out in something in school and vise versa. 

Well tonight, he was on his best behavior. I hope this work cuz ive put him in time out, ive taken toys away, ive taken tv away, ive taken the wii away, ive taken playing outside with his best friend away. I even spanked him once(wont do it again)

None of it worked. So im hoping this works. Im at my wits end with this

i have to give credit to his teacher for coming up with it. 

i just dont know what to do. this kid has been through shit i wouldnt wish on anyone. so he acts older than what he is. Thats good in a way you know

good luck! it's good to nip it in the butt now before he is older and out of control Positive reinforcement (aka award the good behavior) is a great tool for 5 yr olds.

we cant get a straight answer out of him. 

1 minute "i forgot"

next minute "i dont know"

nxt minute "i dont remember"

i know why he acts the adult, and in ways i dont blame him but........ theres a time and place and shit

me and him used to do movie night 2 times a month. 

he knows his behavior is preventing him

he wants to stay up until 8 instead of 7, his behavior prevents him you know. 

i really hope this works

Good idea. I hope he keeps up the good work. Did you and his dad just separate?
