Hi, I need some ideas about a 4 year old boy in my class. He caused lots of problems for his previous teacher and I was hoping that he was acting this way just to aggravate her, perhaps just not liking her. Now I have him and he's acting just as strange. His mother is a doctor and father is professional something, I had his sister last year and she was quite a pleasure. Here are some of the things he does. He plays well alone, but not with others. He will start to play with someone (such as building blocks, etc,) and all of a sudden he'll throw one of the toys at a child, hurting them. He will watch the adult in the room (in an almost creepy way,) as if sizing you up, he just stares. If you ask him what he is doing, he just turns away and sits there. The other day, he climbed up and got hold of the blind cord, pulled it down and it crashed to the ground. Later in the day, he said to me, "When are you leaving?" I figured he wanted to know so that he could begin to "act out" for the afternoon teacher. Sure enough, she left me a note about all the things he did that afternoon, one thing was trying to poke his fingers into a fan. He constantly does these weird kind of things. Today I told him he had to stay in one area, alone all day and play alone. We did the same thing on the playground. What to do??? Ideas? He is mad about the isolation.
