Do you know if he is being bullied at school?
I have asked him several times about those types of things. I says no. He says he doesn't like the principal but insists he has no issues with kids at school or on the playground.
I believe it is something that is going on at school that is making him this upset. When he says he doesn't like the principal...do you know why? Was there a problem between them? How does the principal act toward him? I believe you need to investigate further on the school end to see what is happening. A call or email to his teachers to get a sense of what is going on and how he is acting while in school
I have done that and the teacher says he get along with everyone. I did press him about the principal and he just says she is 'mean' to everyone. He is easily upset. I have to leave work now. will check this again when I get home. Thank you.
I feel like we are missing something...my gut says he is having some difficulties either with his school work or another child. I would stay on it with the teacher and maybe even request a meeting with the principal.
Since you are having everything check
