Hi I am having a problem with my son acting up in kindergarten. He has never went to preschool or daycare. He had went to school for only four days and he goes only 2 and 1/2 hours a day. She said her and her helper think that he is ADHD. After four days please. We just moved, had to get rid of our dog, he lost his baby sister three years ago, 2 of his grandfathers, and got a new puppy. I have worked with him since he was 3 on writing, reading, shapes, and much more. I think he is stressed out. The class size is 23 kids. They are doing things in class that he already knows. I feel like that is part of the problem. His teacher sent me a note home that said he hit two kids at school th other day. She went into no form of detail at all. Come to find out he did it becaue the one kid hit him in the chest on his (boob) which we told him no one is to touch him there cause its wrong. And the other kid shoved him so he shoved back. Yes, my son should of walked away so he did get a time out for it. However, why did they him be the victim of bullying? If they would of stoped the bullying none of this would of happened. I am so upset and have no clue on what to do. She sent us an email and she feels that my son is not capable of listening cause he has all the signs of ADHD. She talks about ADHD at least 3-4 times in her email. Talk about trying to force a parent to medicate their child. I will not out my son on any of those harmful meds ever. What should I do? We are asking her to give him more time to adjust to his new surroundings. We read him books every night about how his is to act at school. Please comment.
