Do You Have Consequences at Home for School Behavior?

My son is having a rough time in kindergarten and I'm really disappointed in his behavior. It seems he is not following directions, being very silly, having a hard time transitioning between activities, and often becoming angry (about things others did, things he couldn't do, etc) and he is unable to calm himself down and join his class. He is spending a lot of time in time-out and now in another classroom, I assume because he is too disruptive to stay in his own class. he had a lot of these behaviors in preschool too but it seems to be...

Behavior Issues in 6 Year Old Girl, Disrespect, Drama, Yelling

I am a little afraid to ask this question, having just read a ton of judgemental comments responding to a mom who blogged about a chaotic trip to a restaurant, but here goes. My daughter's attitude is getting increasingly disrespectful toward me. She's 6 and has a brother who's 21 months. She's starting to say things like, "I hate you" "I don't care" and she's yelling at the slightest provocation, when she doesn't get what she wants. She's sticking her tongue out and saying things like "you hate me". She'll say "get me some water now"...

Birthday Party Etiquette

Another question! My husband and I were discussing whom to invite to my daughter's birthday party. She can only have 10 people at the venue we selected, and the theme is relatively gender neutral. I thought, for simplicity's sake, to limit the invitations to little girls she is closest to--she already has her own list of invitees! However, there are 3 boys in question. One has invited her to his party, another has parents who are our friends, and the third is our neighbor and my daughter wants to invite his sister (she tends not to...
