no nothing tramatic has happend his teacher says when he is foucused he is a great student

Quoting rayroe2:

I was in special ed classes and had a Iep. He prob just doesn't know how to tell you he learns better in a smaller environment. Has anything traumatic happen to him or in the home?

I had a similar situation happen and I sat in class with my son because I wanted to see what was going on so after I found out the problem which was lack of supervision and a boy that didn't get along with him I switched his class and problems stopped. If your son acts differently at school then at home check out the school.

I was gonna say take him to a therapist. When my son started acting up in 2009 he wouldn't talk to me and i knew he wouldn't talk to his father. So i took him to a therapist he's been seeing her off and on since then. She diagnosed him with adhd. But he does really well seeing her. You can tell when he has and when it's been a while. Good luck mama!

I agree with therapy.  Is there a new man/person in your life?

 so he just need the small environment I bet. If a school phy. see him they while just put him prob in a class of 10 or smaller for a hour most the day and get a break then classes you get notes to help you while the teachers teaches.

IMO if you've not noticed anything amiss at home, or when he's at someone else's house it could be that he and the teacher don't get along.  However, I would take him in to see a therapist.  If you don't feel comfortable doing that then have his father and a male relative/male friend sit down and get to the bottom of what's going on.  It could be that he's feeling himself and noticing girls.  Who knows.  GL
