How do I prevent my 7 year old from hitting and kicking at school?Today at school he had hit
one of his teachers so hard in the face it was heard across the room by another teacher.I would
appreciate any input you can give me.
If your son is havinag persistent behavior problems at school you need to seek help from the guidance counselors. If they cannot provide specific behavioral programs to deal with the difficulties I recommend that you have the school system find a consultant who is experienced with behavior issues and is a certified behavior analyst. You do not mention a diagnosis so I can't speak to that issue except to note that persistent behavior problems suggest a need to have a team evaluation by a local hospital or university to rule out developmental or psychiatric issues.
