Help! sons bad behaviour

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
My son is 4 in May and had a very bad ear infections before christmas (which meant he was off school alot)and since going back to school after xmas holidays he's been a completely different child, disruptive in school, aggressive, I have been called in 4 time in a week about him hurting children, blaming other kids for stuff he has done and answering teacher back!! he is also very very high energy, he's always been a busy boy, but never naughty or aggressive a friend has said that it could be linked to his Glue Ear but am I just kidding myself that there is a medical reason for his very sudden change in behaviour where did my happy busy boy go??? has someone else got any ideas?

I'm sorry to hear you're having a few problems. Have you asked your son at all why he's behaving like this?

Maybe its due to him being away from school a lot and he's found it difficult to integrate back in, the friends he had before he had time off have made other friends and now don't include him the same and this bad behaviour is a way of turning attention back on himself?

I'm sorry I'm only hazarding a guess here, but maybe try arrange a meeting with his teacher and see if there's anything he/she can suggest that may get to the bottom of it?

Your son is still very young. Maybe as he was off for a bit before Christmas he is re-testing his boundaries and familiarising himself with the school again.

Speak to the school and work together to come up with strategies which you can both use.

Hi there. I agree with the others. He is still so little. I think the time he had off before christmas is most likely the cause rather than the actual illness itself. Could well be the friends he made have made other friends and he isn't included as much like sarah says hun. Or something has changed at the school while he was away? New teacher? Classroom? I agree you need to sit down with the teacher/s and try and come up with a way you are both happy with of dealing with your little boys behaviour. Let us know how you get on Kiss Xx
