Parker has had a couple bad days at school. He's been yelling at the teacher and refusing to do things. His behaviorist thinks maybe they have been expecting more out of him lately or something. He gets that attitude with me but has always been good at school. I think it's probably hard on him with all the school work he's not used to. I know it's good for him though. Maybe it will just take some time. I am going to keep an eye on it for the next week or two. If it continues, Parker's behaviourist is going to talk to his teachers to see what they can work out. Maybe see if they have any clues to what triggers the melt downs and behaviours. I'm also watching to see how he's feeling and if anything is different. (When I asked Parker what he did to the teacher, he said, "I hit her", I know he didn't but I think he must have wanted to, lol. I thought he would say he yelled at her.)

They said he just had trouble in the morning, that the rest of the day was good. He had a new thing about his jacket also. He doesn't want to wear it on the playground or at home, even when it's freezing. I wonder what is up with that?

I would love to hear from anyone who's children have behaviour problems at school. It's nice to know I'm not alone.

Molly is all packed and ready for her school camping trip tomorrow. She is so excited! She is a little scared too. She is not much of a nature girl and was like me, scared of every little noise outside. She's happy though, and can't wait. I'm going to miss her.

Today the kids and I went to visit my sister. She had just came back from a hair show with my niece. She brought me a bag with some hair stuff, earrings, a scented thing and some bracelets. I love them all! It was so nice of her and Mandy to think of me. They are so sweet. I have the best family.

I'm tired tonight. It's been a really long day. I put away a ton of books of Parker's. What am going to do with all his books? He loves them all but keeps leaving them out everywhere. I need to find a solution for that one.

Well, I better get ready for another busy day tomorrow. Have a nice day!

You are not alone! Jaysen has always had issues at school. Sometimes they're big, sometimes they're managable. Haven't been able to find a correlation as to which way they swing. If this is relatively new for Parker, I would just observe for now. :)

You are not alone. Deklan has meltdowns school. He's had a couple of really big ones in the last couple of weeks. I'm sorry... I know it's pretty tough, but hang in there.

DEFINITELY not alone! This has been a hard year for Kameron... he's with a first year teacher (which I think was mean to both Kam and the teacher) and he's constantly in trouble for not thinking before he acts. I can usually tell by his level of hyperness in the morning whether he's going to have a good day at school or not. Sad isn't it? Hang in there, the year is ALMOST over!

dude - I need that shirt in four sizes.

Foster's really struggling now, too.
Heartbreaking, when mama just can't fix it.

Sorry about the rough week at school. TC does get upset sometimes too.
