My 5yr old son is not doing really well at school. Teacher

Customer Question

Good morning
My 5yr old son is not doing really well at school. Teacher says he looses focus quickly, doesn't want to work, kicks behind the table, leaks the writing board, he empti the glue bottle on the working table. Put the food on his face and then laugh.
I know I can improve some things he sleeps with mom(me) and dad and he plays iPad like 2hrs daily. Are these things causing that behavior? I see him very normal at home I don't know what to do. Thank you.

Hello, welcome to this site.

Please start disciplining him by reward and punishment, informing him reasons. These could be progressively incremented till he starts good behavior at school.
