I need Advice PLEASE!
My son just turned 6 years old in July. He is entering the 1st grade this fall. He is a very bright boy. He was tested in school last year and he is reading 3rd grade level, math at 2nd grade, and is unable to quit talking. He accomplishes all his tasks easily and without distraction most of the time. BUT he talks all the time, about everything approriate and not. He needs to be the center of attention, needs to have the last word, and is a major story teller. Last year in Kindergarten he was in trouble almost daily for interupting and wasting class time. He is 53" tall and 95 pounds. So the biggest in his class, which leads to recess issues as well. He doesn't know his size or strength and therefore would play much rougher than the others. Over the summer we have worked deligently at trying to get him to understand "quiet time- no talking time- not interupting- and playing gentle". However, I think it is worse now. All I can see is constant problems in school this coming year, and I am at my witts end. How do I help him? What else can I do?

Have your son tested- IQ.  You need to know if he is gifted.  My daughter was having many of the same issues, if not all of them.  She is small for her age, but gets along better with older children- 2 to 3 grades higher.  She enjoys adult conversation and is easily distracted.  I arranged a meeting with the counselor (also her gifted pull-out teacher), the super, the principal, the 1st grade teacher and the 2nd grade teacher last year.  I voiced my concerns and asked that she be promoted to 2nd grade at the Christmas break.  Other than social concerns, they were completely willing to give it a shot.  She did fantastic!  Her grades remained the same, she adapted quickly and has been promoted and began 3rd grade this year.  There are many explanations for your difficulty, and if you like, we can talk more.
Good luck to you and yours.  You sound like a wonderful Mother!
