My 6 year old son who is normally very well behaved at school had started acting up at school. He has been suspended from school for the second time in two weeks. This is really starting to affect his education, I have had serious talks with him about his behaviour being unacceptable and he knows it is wrong but I am worried that when he goes back to school he will act up again after being back at school for a few days. His behaviour put his class mates in a dangerous environment and caused injuries to another student which I am very upset about. I would like to hear from any parents if they have been through this with their children as I would really like to sort this out before it gets out of hand.

Ask your question

  • Were you able to find out what was causing the behaviour change?



  • have you considered getting him the autism/aspergers or similar disability test. He might be having communication difficulties or cognitive delays – it usually begins to be noticeable around 6. It would be worth a try to see if there is something to explain his actions then you can understand and get the support he needs.



  • ask him what is going on if he has no idea it may be time to get some specialist help.



  • there are some good comments here



  • Hope he has started to settle for you



  • How is it going now?



  • There is usually an underlying reason as to why kids react like this. Maybe he can change class if there is a problem with the teacher or other children in the class?



  • How is he going at school now?



  • Lots of good advise here



  • Hope there has been something here to help you.



  • I hope some advice below has helped you here.



  • Go to his class as Mother’s help Have a meeting with his class teacher and school principle to make up a behaviour management plan.Does he get migrains? Is he being teased? take him to the GP for a checkup.Does he have a personality clash with the teacher? Suspending a child of this age is ridiculous as it does no one any good.Talk to your son & find the reason behind his actions as their must be a reason.If everytihng does not get a result consider another school.Good luck



  • Is anything troubling him Best of Luck



  • Is he getting bullied ? Does he have friends? Is he work too hard? Does he like his teacher? These are the things I would be looking. Has anything changed at home? Are you and your partner fighting? Has he got a new sibling lately ?



  • I hope you manage to sort it out. It definitely sounds like there’s something more going on here.
