My son just recently started kindergarten (August 5Th) to be exact. He is 5.5 years old and in the two weeks that he has been in school, his teacher has called me twice saying he isn't listening and being disruptive and yelling in the restroom, not going to his chair when asked, etc etc. Basically just not following the rules. The first time she called, I spoke calmly to my child and told him he needs to start listening to his teacher and that he is in big boy school now and needs to follow the rules. I told him if I get one more phone call then I will take away all of his privileges. (TV, toys, and things that he likes)
....teacher calls today. says the same thing, that he's making bad choices. anyway, problem is, my husband doesn't think taking his things away is the proper way to "punish" him into learning to behave at school and wants to just talk to him instead.
So if this were your 5 year old, what would you do?
