the good news is the
improvements have continued (there have been a couple blips of course
(as he’s a 6 yr old boy!) but even they are better!) , and we really are
back with the child he was before the introduction to schooling. and he
took responsibility for this.

I fail to see how telling a child “no” when they are doing something dangerous is trying to force them to be convenient.

I fail to see how telling a child “no” when they are doing something dangerous is trying to force them to be convenient. Yes, children need to be engaged and given opportunities to play, learn, and mirror your activities. Learning the world does not revolve around them is also an important lesson. I don’t let my son hit his sister, or give him something else to hit. He gets told that is not appropriate, and if it continues – he gets a time out. Dropping everything to cater to your child is not doing them any favors. Learning to wait… Read more »

To set the scene we have 2 wonderful, highly intelligent gorgeous boys, it is the eldest who is potentially at the top end of the gifted and talented category and with whom we have a problem. Something which started of just being taken out on me and now it appears has started at school, ( when things have been better towards me! so was a huge shock to discover) I have always set boundaries, been consistent and applied consequences for inappropriate behaviour, I have avoided getting into arguments when he has not accepted consequences. we have also rewarded good behaviour.… Read more »

cont…We know he doesn’t like to try new things until he can do them perfectly (this trait has been there since he was little) – eg riding his bike, colouring in and swimming he refused to do before he could actually do it well – he does not like to fail, however he was always a very confident baby and toddler – he clapped himself at his own achievements before age 6months, as parents we have always encouraged him. I’ve taken a hard long look at the past 6 years and feel i can honestly say we have never put… Read more »

cont…up to nearly 5 and the upturn in his school life he was a well behaved, lovely boy who had deep consideration for others needs and played and shared beautifully with others (always had a natural tendency to lead), now he wants to just be the boss and wants to assert his views of play on others. it is fair to say none of the problems we now have showed themselves at kindy, i can pinpoint the problems in behaviour starting to when he was bored at his first school and now it’s all escalating – we’ve agreed to the… Read more »

my despair of yesterday might have been a little quick off the mark, i had been unaware of the behaviour at school, home behaviour wasn’t too bad so i was thinking all was well at school, so when we were informed we took action, re-affirmed our expectations, made it clear he was responsible for own actions and getting good reports, he was in charge whether or not he got nice things at home, or had to go without, sent him off to school with this positive but clear message he was in charge of the outcome. and he came home… Read more »

the good news is continuing…

JulieMulcahy

Dear Mamakirua Thank you for sharing a little of your journey with a strong willed child. At “Parents Inc” in Auckland I notice they have speakers on that very subject(it is $10 to attend a session). Lots of parents reading your entry will nod sympathetically. You sound as though you have been a great parent – don’t see your son’s behaviours as a sign you could have “done better” – instead perhaps you could look outwards into the rich community of “experts” we have to advise and support us as we raise our families. At home, you might like to… Read more »

thank you for replying to my epic account… the good news is the improvements have continued (there have been a couple blips of course (as he’s a 6 yr old boy!) but even they are better!) , and we really are back with the child he was before the introduction to schooling. and he took responsibility for this. we have always been looking at who he and that is what we want for him, however social acceptable behaviour is needed whoever the child is! No, i’ve never had any concerns with ASD. He has always been highly articulate, he has… Read more »

Shereeo

I have a 9yr old who has always been a model student at school. SHe is adopted and knows it and it has never been a problem, BUT…… About 5 months ago she came home crying and told me that her teacher had told her that she was nothing special as she was adopted. I think she misunderstood the teacher, and that what was said was that just because she is adopted makes her no more special than any other child. I pacified her but took it no further. She says she hates her teacher, wants to be taken out… Read more »
