The vision in my head as I went to sleep last night:
A small square box.
Scott, the teacher & I trying to make him fit in it.
Tommy trying desperately to fit in it.... but not knowing how.
We are determined to instill in him that inappropriate behavior at school is unacceptable and will result in a consequence at home.
Consequences at home for misdeeds at school are meaningless to him. He does not see the connection. He just thinks we are mad at him.
He is surrounded by poor examples in his class.
He has no ill-intent.... he's just reacting or trying to be funny.
Modified/intensified behavior plan.
Transfer to another school.
If we can train him to behave the way he's supposed to in school... he won't be Tommy anymore.
"God made him just the way he ought to be" is what the ladies at church are always telling me. Do you reckon God is going to take all the phone calls, go to the conferences with the teacher, and get him through elementary school?
