My DS is in kindy and his teacher just called me. For the past week/week and a half he's been extremely disruptive at school. She said he's very loud, talks out of turn, disrespectful, doesn't listen, and is mean to the other kids (she didn't say it like this, she didn't list off all his bad qualities right off the bat, but you get the gist). She figured last week it was due to me being gone for my first business trip and his world being thrown a little out of whack, but it hasn't gotten better. He's gotten time-outs almost every day this week, and today he sat out recess because he was so out of control (first time that's ever happened). One example, he was playing with some blocks during free time and she called clean-up, and he went over to a kid playing with a puzzle and started throwing the pieces across the room. And he thinks it's <i>funny</i>! He thought getting time-out for all of recess was funny! If you ask him why he did it he just says "I don't know..." If I press him harder he says "My brain makes me be mean, I can't help it." I'm just completely at a loss. He's my oldest, I have no experience with this, and when I called my mom for her opinion she didn't have any ideas because she never got any naughty calls from school with any of her kids. He wasn't like this at the beginning of the year, he was a little disruptive but was easily redirected but it's just gotten worse. The teacher thinks some of it is attention-seeking and I'm inclined to agree, but I just don't know what to do...
