My 6 yr old son is in 1st grade. Very smart, no trouble doing schoolwork or homework. Sometimes he says things to his classmates, like saying their name a funny way and it hurts the kids feelings. Then the teacher tells me he hit a kid in the face with his lunch sack (soft canvas cloth). He said he was swinging it, but the teacher told me some kids saw it and told on him. I don't believe he whacked the kid, but I do believe he may have been acting silly like swinging the bag back and forth and coming close to his friends face. This is a kid of someone I've known for a while. Not a friend, but still I know her. Then today my 9 yr old daughter wouldn't give him toothpaste so he punched her in the stomach. He is the size of a 4 year old and very petite. Is is trying to make up for his small size? The lunch aides also told the teacher that he has been using his hands a lot so he sat out the last recess. He is not super aggressive, but I am worried about the path he is going down. I didn't raise him or my 9 yr old for that fact to act like that. My hubby and I are nice to each other. He doesn't watch bad shows. He likes to cook, help me clean and if you need a helping hand, he's right there. He is a great student and progressing well. Is this "normal". He is a young kid in his class. Help!
I think it's kinda normals esp for boys to hit sometimes. They tend to use actions more than words. I would just stay on top of it w/his teacher/school and let them know you are concerned and working on it the best you can.
