Hi, my son, calub, is almost 6 years old and very aware of what is expected of him both at home and at school. Calub has never been the type of child to not listen when he is spoken to, and in the past has always done what he's told when he's told to do it! However, in the past few months, he has been getting notes sent home from school stressing that he is not listening or following directions at school. I found that interesting because at home he has been having the same problem. When i tell him to do something, he is either forgetting VERY QUICKLY or simply choosing to do what he has been told to do on his own time. He gets a chance to express how he was feeling at school, and a chance to explain what happened, but half of the time, he don't remember or he just sits there and looks at us and says nothing. We started by giving him a time out to think about what he has done( 1 min per year of age!), then we started to add time onto that when the problems kept up, we even tried spanking, but nothing is working. He is not violent, it just seems like he forgets what he is told the second that he hears it.. i don't know what to do from here...could he b ADD? i don't feel that he is ADHD because he is not hyper...well, not out of the ordinary for his age.. PLEASE HELP!! What should i do?
