My 6 year old boy is having alot of problems at school, he just started summer school June 2nd and is still having screaming episodes to the point he exhaustes himself and kicks and has actually spit in his teachers face, he told his teacher that if he screams long enough the school will kick him out, we have tried taking things away, grounding him, even rewarding him with good behavior, but nothing seems to work, What should I do? Any suggestions?

What can I do next?

Take him to a doctor to be evaluated. This behavior goes beyond simple poor behavior for a 6 year and to be this manipulative, it's extreme for a 6 year old.

I agree with Jo, this seems a little beyond your everyday child discipline issues. Sounds like the needs to have some testing done by a psychiatrist.

Is something going on in his life? Any big changes recently? Anything you can think of that would cause him to act out in such a way?

Has this been an ongoing issue for a while or did it just start?

I agree with the others - this is not "normal" behavior. Your son sounds so angry and he cannot find a way to release it. Something has to be causing that anger, whether it be something internal he cannot control or an outside stimulus. Have him evaluated.

Good luck.

Have you had him tested for anything. Even if there are discipline issues that does not sound like normal behavior.

Based solely on the above info, then yes I'd agree there are deeper issues at stake here, but there must be more to the story??! Why does he want to get kicked out exactly? Does he just not like it, did something happen?? Did he have these issues during the regular school year? If so, how did those teachers handle it, how did you handle it?

Clearly he's trying to get attention for something, but what, right?? I'm assuming you've asked him why he's behaving in such a way but what does he say? I'd need to hear a little more about the conversations you have had with him to know really what I think the best thing to do would be. Certainly frustrating, sorry he's not cooperating with school:(

answers from New York on

First why is a 6 yo in summer school? Did he have these behaviors during
the year or is it just summer school. If just SS get him out and let him be
a kid!!!!! They need down time. If this went on all year, then may be an
evaluation by psychologist etc. is necessary.



answers from Daytona Beach on

was he ok at first at school? if so, then maybe something happened at school to make him not want to go. it does sound like some sort of behavioral issue. and for a 6yo to say that if they scream long enough the school would kick him out? he must have heard it from someone. is it the same teacher or a different one? did he go to preschool? did he act like this there? my daughter, at the end of the year in kindergarden had a hard time of it. she would cry everyday and not want to go. i would see if the school's counsilor (sp) could talk to him and see what's going on.
