I have a five year old son and he is an only child. He is always getting into trouble in school because he is so spirited, very active and basically stubborn. Academically he is doing great, but I can't say the same about his behavior. The Teachers and care givers are having a difficult time with him and I get calls at work almost on a daily basis. We are currently attending Therapy to try to chanel his energy in a positive way but it doesn't seem to be working. I think he is a great kid and I don't want to change him. He is hiper at home, but he always finds something to occupy his time or I give him things to do. He just likes to do what he wants when he wants to. In school, he has a hard time with changes specially when they switch activities because he wants to finish what he started or he's simply not happy with the activity he was given. He is very strong minded and opinionated.He questions everything when he's not in agreement which is most of the time. The therapy doesn't seem to be helping him much in school, so I was wondering if you had any suggestions. I'm at a loss as to what to try next....
