Hello..how was your son's behavior before the passing of his grandmother and the split from your husband? Does your son see his dad much anymore? Are you still split up? Has your son witnessed any physical abuse in the home?
His behaviour was a bit difficult in reception year (running off hiding under tables and in bushes etc) but they put some things in place and he calmed down alot.in year one he was wobbly (got upset easily if things didnt go right,end of the world etc) but had a lovely teacher who put things iin place and he did great. In year two (this year) he was absolutely fine for 4 months,no probs at all until his behaviour kicked off big time.
Incidently he has always been v bright academically and does v well but he has no confidence in himself.
My husband is still at home.We have never argued in front of the kids but of course they could hear some of the heated arguments and there have been some nasty words and threats passed between us like 'you will never see your kids again' etc
Yes he may have witnessed one or two physical incidents between me and my husband.
He has only just moved schools so difficult to answer...but at his last school...more a best friend and a few other friends but quite well liked by the other kids I think (more girls than boys) He has always been v close to one child (different every year) rather than having lots of friends.
I wouldnt say he gets distracted easily...he has just sat for a few hours on his own in our kitchen doing work on his own really well (he has been excluded today) BUT he has no confidence in himself and teachers say they have to keep on at him 'yes you can do it keep going' etc to keep him going
Yes he usually focus well at school but defo not at the moment....the slightest thing he dont like or what he views as a critism and it all goes quickly wrong.
He has been doing alot of hiding under desks and refusiung to come out recently bye the way (which he hasnt done since reception) today he wouldnt come out the bathroom cubicle and then was leaping around like a monkey V distressed/upset/angry
