Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
his DD is 6 and in 1st grade. we have her full time. bio mom took off when she was 2 months old. anyway kid has had serious behavior issues since school started this year. we have tried everything we know to do, testing for add and other "disorders"...sticker charts, rewards, privliges taken, spanking...etc even the teacher and school has run out of ideas to curb her behavior. at home its fine..at school horrible. anyway due to absolutely the worst behavior yet we decided she will not be trick or treating and made her return her costume to the store.....SO wants to take it a step past that...we were originally supposed to go trick or treating with some friends of ours who also have kids....So still wants to go...and bring his daughter along and not let her dress up and participate and make her watch all the kids. i think this is just really mean and a little overboard.

I'd do it. She'd also lose Christmas too.

Its overboard. Im confused if you have been in her life for 6 years why you say 'his kid' and seem so detatched.

Instead keep her home and make her pass out candy

i think you are worrying about the wrong thing here. Something is going on to cause her to act out in school. Bullying? abuse? You need to do some serious investigating

No doing fun things would be rewarding bad behavior. The kid sounds like a brat.

Quoting Jennifer63080:

I agree. It's about family time and celebrating together, do you do enough fun things with her together? I'm guessing not, since this is the only thing you could think of to ground her from...



Is she being bullied at school? On the bus? Something must be going on




Quoting ripemango:

denial of any holiday as punishment/discipline is cruel imo.

wow. that is a lot. is she having trouble with grades?

Quoting Anonymous:

well last week alone she threw AND kicked balls at the PE teacher, stole a kids lunch box and hid it, poked another child in the eye, covered the hole of the water fountain so another student couldnt drink, and finally on fri they were going to the library, she cut out of line, doubled back to her classroom and the teacher found her emptying a bucket of candy into her bookbag. at home we have NO issues like this.

Quoting ambermario4ever:

well it depends on what she did. but in most cases that would be going over board.

she is not being bullied, her teacher is super nice and lets ALOT of her behavior slide. she has been to a counselor and an actual therapist. both basically said nothing is wrong with her, she just does not want to listen.

Quoting quinnsmom715:

if shes only bad in school,is she being bullied?learning disability?

Feel your pain. My DS, 6, is (what I consider) an asshole at school, too. Zero issues at home. ADHD testing just came back negative, exploring other options at this time. It is beyond frustrating.
