If only he would use his intelligence for good. I am exaggerating of course. We had conferences last night. We met with the Kindergarten teacher. I was worried that the issues would be behavioral. And I was right on the money.
She said he is very intelligent and meticulous and a bunch of other good things. But as soon as he is given a couple seconds or minutes of *in between activity* time he gets sidetracked and that is where the problems arise. He will goof off trying to get the other kids to laugh and be everyone's friend.
So the teacher is going to try a new tactic and so are we at home. Positive reinforcement. From what she says he thrives with it so we are going to tell him something positive as soon as he wakes up in the morning and as soon as he gets home at night.
Next conference is in January.. I'm hopnig the behavior is better by then.
