I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Ok I'm feeling much betta than what I was a couple of days ago. My chest is still a lil wheezy but it's all breaking up, so that's a good thing.
I really won't go into detail about my son. He basically was acting up in school to where it was disrupting the class. I had to have a meeting with his teacher and it went ok but then again it didn't.
She said that my son is very smart, but he has a different way of learning. His learning is tactful, she says. Meaning that he likes to feel, touch, and smell what he's learning. He didn't like what they were doing in class, so he decides to do his own thing, which is messing with a particular girl.
My son likes to pinch on females. But she said there is one particular girl there that was a lil chubby and shy. He would grab all of her fat and pinch her as hard as he can. Now this doesn't hurt women, but it's fucking annoying. But this makes the lil girl cry everytime, she says.
Then sometimes if he doesn't get his way, he kicks and screams.
Now I took it all in because I know my son. But the part I broke down was on the part where she said it's getting to where the teachers are exhausted after a whole day of him. She was telling me that she would be going part time for awhile, so that meant that she couldn't be there all the time. Her learning is stern and he listens to her and one of the 3 year old teachers. But when she is not there, she was giving me 2 options:
1. Have half days
2. Go to class with the 3 year olds.
Now at this point, I'm crying. I know that my son can get a lil outta hand, but I didn't realize it was this extreme. She told me not to worry cuz she was brainstorming on finding activities to strike his attention. But she just wanted to let me know just in case. But she also wanted me to do some activities at home with him. I like some ideas from you guys, cuz I'm not creative at all with grabbing his attention. The only thing I know he likes is his movies. But I know he can't watch movies for the rest of his life just so he can get outta my hair. I need to know how to teach him things at home as well. ANY SUGGESTIONS??????
So I went to prayer meeting that nite and asked the pastor to pray for my son. I gave him a brief summary of what was going on and just asked for a special prayer for him. So we prayed hard.
Well I get up Thursday and sat up and talked to my son. I told him that he is a big boy now and all this stuff he's doing in school is not exceptable. He's either going to follow his teacher's orders or pay the consequences, meaning no toys and no movies!!! He nodded his head in understanding.
So I called the school around the time that I thought they were eating lunch and having quiet time. She said that he was on his best behavior today. She found some activities that he really liked and focused on. He was awesome!! You don't know how good that made me feel. So when I came to pick him up from the babysitter, we congratulated him and I bought him a small token of my appreciation.....some Skittles!!!
Friday I pray for him again and I get up and talked to him again. I go to pick him up and he was the same as Thursday...GREAT!!!!
But what a lot of people were telling me was the reason why he might of acted that way because he was bored and needed a challenge. One of my friends said that he might be gifted. I don't know. What do you guys think?
