Hi, my kids are all three in primary school and have been in their new school for 3 weeks. Our container hasn't arrived yet so we are still camping in our house. We already got two letters from the school of two of my children who have behaved terrible at school. The one for bad language, hurting another child and bad manners and not listening to the teacher. The other one (in the same week) also didn't listen to teacher, smirking when told off and disturbing the other children constantly. I feel so embarrased and at my wits end with them. They also have been fighting constantly at home and driving anywhere is a total nightmare. Have I lost my good kids in the UK? I am sure they are a bit bored, but what do I do about the school thing? I have talked to them, threatened, made nice promises for good behaviour, but it doesn't seem to sink in? Sorry for the moan, but I felt like i've lost controle of my children. Also, they don't accept the word "no" and can carry on for hours if they want something and we said "no" . Putting them in time out creates an even bigger struggle with the 8 year old getting really destructive (hitting the doors, walls and windows). If she breakes something my husband will surely kill her. Any advice? Will it get better? anyone experienced the same things. We hve been here now 8 weeks.
