I'm about to lose it!

Ds is 8 and in 3rd grade. He's always been a bit of a scatter brain and needed some extra guidance in writing but overall above grade level in everything and the teachers love him. This week though! His handwriting is crap (I'm about to email his teacher and ask her to keep him in at recess to rewrite all his hw if it comes in messy), he's off topic more than he is on topic, he's being a smart aleck, won't do his hw or school work. Simply stares at it insisting he can't do it. Which he can. He didn't become an idiot in a week, that's for sure. He's currently screaming right now since he lost my company after being rude. He's being RIDICULOUS

Maybe something is going on at school?

Children are such jerks sometimes.

His dad got married on Saturday but he's been living with her for a year now so it's not any different (moved in together immediately).

You are freaking rediculous. You are going to ask his teacher to give up her break because you are too damn lazy to make sure he is doing his homework neatly at home. You are a piece of work. I hope she laughs in your damn face

I would have him see a counselor.

I had that happen, and he ended up with an IEP, and evaluated.

Tell him that if he is going to act like a baby then you will have to treat him like one. Then follow him around for a day or two.

It isn't the schools problem it's yours.

He can sit on the bench to do it and watch his friends play since he wrote it sloppy. Previous teachers did it and he knocked it off. She's too nice.

So what excuses your laziness

Why don't you make him redo his homework if it's messy? I have a third grader with very messy handwriting too and I make sure he erases and redoes whatever is sloppy before he turns it in.
